The shape of “Missed tree I and II”, redolent of the elements of nature, is combined with a more technical aspect: the steel base. This contrast gives rise to an object that we might define as “techno-ethnic”, that brings to mind the forms of the plant world without ever breaking off completely from the technological world. The two versions, one formed of a single body (Missed Tree I) and the other with a branching element (Missed Tree II) offer the potential for endless combinations.
