Product description Specification

The Fungi Stool is a block of wood obtained from a dead Apple tree with its native populations of fungi, inside and outside the log. The final stages in the life cycle of a tree attracts specialised fungi organisms which attack the wood breaking down the tough lignin layer that protects it. Fungi are in the air. They just await the opportunity to take advantage of the right conditions to grow and transform the organic matter. Wood decay fungi is always unique. No two pieces are exactly the same because there’s precise time, place and environmental conditions for its genesis.

Alcarol main action is sectioning, and when the saw has finished his work our eyes can see the hidden world of Nature, sometimes simply amazing. The section planes – through touch, sight and olfaction – allow you to transcend the ordinary perception of a place, discovering the intimate transformative wonder of Nature. The natural wood live edges are frozen in a special extraclear resin block resembling the winter ice that blocked the fungal activity. The transient beauty of Nature becomes eternal.
