Moooi SMOKE chandelier
Furniture finished with fire. The beauty and character of burned wood is now captured in a long lasting material, creating the strange sensation of sitting on burnt furniture Maarten Baas interpreted his fascination for the element fire with a groundbreaking approach. With the innovative idea of creating furniture finished with fire. Capturing the burning flames into the solidity of wood. More practically, in the production process wooden pieces of furniture are set to fire and burned. When they become completely black the fire is extinguished and the pieces of burned furniture are impregnated with resin to capture the beauty of burned wood. Each chair is unique due to this exceptional production process. Just like the Phoenix, the Smoke objects are reborn from their ashes, gaining new vitality and beauty in a very unusual way.
