What is the most valuable feature of Bricola furniture collection? Maybe it’s a piece of Venice hidden inside? Or is it a nature-cultivated wood material? The true value of the given collection is actually created by both of the mentioned features.
The homeland for oak pillars, used for production of this furniture, is Venetian lagoon. These pillars used to perform an important function – they showed the boundaries of the deepest part of the lagoon and made it possible to pass this area without being stranded.
The company Alcarol has revitalized them and turned into unusual and relevant furniture and accessories.
Сorrosion traces represent the unique design, created by the molluscan shellfish (Teredo Navalis); thanks to its activity the pillars` basis remained strong and valid.
In the time of furniture processing the wood material is carefully cultivated, washed, cleaned, dried and fumigated. After that it is covered with thin wax layer for protection.
The wood material, being softened with sault, the sun and sea, enriched with iron as well as hardened with chill and warm seasons and decorated with the molluscan shellfish and Venetian lagoon affluxes, is a truly unique material. This material is precious, noble, filled with history and romantic by all means, as one can envision the huge amount of serenades and love confessions these pillars have eavesdropped during their life.
Bricola collection comprises different pieces of furniture, namely: several types of big and small tables, bar chairs, a platter and a torchiere. In addition, the wood material is a good match for other materials such as art glass, transparent resin and metal.
