Water Bright is a fragment, a synthesis of the millennial relationship between wood and water. It ‘s the story of the profound and romantic rapport that develops between these two elements in Venice. The light of variable intensity reveals the poetry of this union and referts to the Lagoon atmosphere. alcarol has patented an elaborate craftsmanship capable of filling only the empty spaces of the wood with a transparent resin capturing the underwater air bubbles that bring the wood back to the original look and conditions in the depths of the Venetian canals.


DIMENSIONS 11 x 4 x H 25 cm / Custom Sizes Available


MATERIALS Bricola Solid Oak WOOD, Extraclear Polished RESIN - Colorless or Aquamarine - Burnished STEEL Base, Integrated LED System, Dimmer Metal Touch, Natural Wood surface not covered by resin on the section planes. Selective wood coating with matt natural effect.


About the Bricola Collection alcarol tries to achieve a result that combines handeddown experience of raw materials processing with project research, with the aim to supply a product where the main protagonist is the actual substance that forms it. The Bricola collection, accordingly to the concept of reutilisation, is created by a determination to value the timber of the historical poles of the Venetian canals.


During their stay in the Laguna, these oak logs are deeply sculpted by Teredo Navalis. This mollusk leaves traces of its passing on the wooden surface in the form of shapes and striking designs made of perfectly circular holes, whilst allowing the inner core of the log to remain incredibly healthy and strong. The assiduous labour of the elements requires the replacement of the pole that become scrap, an organic material that has been traversed by life.


To design Bricola collection, alcarol immersed in the waters of the canals of Venice and studied the characteristic environment where these poles were forged. The project brings the idea of submerged cross-section of this extraordinary habitat. alcarol has patented an elaborate and patient craftsmanship able to fill only the empty spaces of the wood with an aquamarine resin and underwater air bubbles that bring the edge of the planks back to the original look and conditions of this timber. In some pieces, the LED lighting evokes the sunlight filtered by the water.


alcarol’s section planes allow you to touch and sight two very different materials that give the plan characteristics we seek for our pieces: warmth and matt porosity from natural wood, elegance and shiny transparency from the aquamarine resin. Using the resin to fill the gaps left by mollusks, alcarol combines the search of functionality with the poetic choice to bring the material beneath the water's surface, stopping the time in the end of its cycle and giving it a new life before it becomes a waste.
