The Fungo Centerpiece by Hands on Design in collaboration with Térence Coton is inspired by the shape of a mushroom (Fungo in Italian). The Milan based brand has a unique approach of bringing together the incredibly rich craft traditions of both Italy and Japan to create objects that enrich daily lives through their sensorial and enchanting beauty. The peculiarity of this object lies in its elliptic shape that offers a direction and duality for which to play with. The artisan formed the elliptical shape by working a wood that works only in one direction while drying. This piece comes in two colors, in the black version the finishing is iron-oxides-based, while in the natural version copper leaf oxidizes the edges to enhance the product. The piece can be displayed alone or as a bowl to create a beautiful effect.
