As most of our work, these furniture are an investigation about the inner worlds. They are particular, round and closed in themselves pieces, protective individuals that generates an isolate space in which we can create our personal universe. The use of materials reinforce this sense of division between interior and exterior. From the outside we can feel an  imperfect, random and raw finishing, made out of a synthetic porcelain. As we move to the interior part  it becomes somewhat softer and much kinder: . porcelain gets a more delicate touch, as wood, cooper and embroidery appears
