A perfect circle becomes a functional and scenographic element revealing its nature as a container. Traditional piles of wood are ennobled and become the pretext for exhibiting a piece which is half-way between sculptural object, and a furnishing accessory. The strong point is the contrast between the natural roughness of the wood, and the tactile and visual perfection of the iron. The functionality is double and eloquent: not only a wood container, but also a space where books can be stored on small shelves open to view. The ideal complement for reading by the fireside.
