Three-dimensional decorative panel made of inlayed wood
Decorative panel with inlays in oak. Low relief technique for a three-dimensional effect. Combination of white mineral material with natural wood colors. Side faces in wengé-colored oak.
Wood, stucco, details in bas-relief, inlays in precious species: Capriccio is a collection of decorative panels in inlayed wood with a three-dimensional effect by means of bas-relief details. Fanciful, fun and elegant subjects: in artistic terms, the word Capriccio refers to an unusual and imaginative composition, far away from rationality.
At each color change of Infinity corresponds a different material, a single piece of veneer, jointed to the other with patience and ability. 0,6 mm thin veneers are chosen one by one basing on the grain characteristics and on the most suitable colors for every single product. With the precision of the laser cut the pieces of wood are cut out and then joined together by hand, like a puzzle, respecting the sense of the wood grain. A back support is applied on the inlayed composition before it is pressed with a heating method. Once the surface is refined, polished and brushed by hand, the bas-relief details are attached to the panel: all the protruding elements are made from a single sheet of wood veneer, cut, back supported, and pressed with heating technique and then strictly glued by hand on a previously inlaid panel, creating a three-dimensional effect with small shadows on the surface of the decorative panel. The particular white grouting of Infinity is made with a spatula, using a volumizing filler that reflects the manual gesture of the craftsman. The panel is finished with a 3-coat water-based paint.
