Rochester falls are one of the most spectacular sites on the island of Mauritius.‎ The relatively rapid cooling of an ancient thick lava flow caused the formation of these distinctive hexagonal and polygonal column-like basalt rocks, on top of which the river Savanne still flows.‎

The design of the items in this collection is complex and elegant.‎ The Rochester collection features a sideboard, a cabinet, a shelf and a set of three floor lamps.‎ The design emulates Rochester Falls’ columnar basalts through a wooden-brass topography, as though the whole pieces originated from a single block of timber crystalized into a multitude of hexagonal columns.‎ The cabinets are composed of more than 3,000 pieces of hexagonal columns that are hand-carved in solid Wenge and Walnut wood skilfully finished, all reassembled and fixed together one by one, by hand.‎

The wooden internal structure is lined in premium quality Italian leather, with a gold and bronze leaf finish and gold-finished mirrored metal sheets.‎ The metal parts are all polished solid brass hexagonal columns.‎

Bookshelf made of six Solid Wenge hexagonal shaped shelves and Solid Brass vertical supports casted to hexagonal shape.‎
