Hilla Shamia casts tree trunks with molten aluminium to form furniture

dezeen.com - Tel Aviv-based Hilla Shamia Design Studio's Wood Casting collection is made by inserting lengths of tree trunk into a mould and filling the spaces with molten metal (+ slideshow).

Tables, stools and benches in the furniture range are constructed by splitting full-length tree trunks to make wooden planks.
