Zema's Bright Woods Tables and Chairs - Illuminating Interior Design





Unique and eye-catching, Bright Woods’ collection of illuminated chairs and coffee tables are sure to capture your attention with their engaging glow. We discovered this charming collection of furniture at Milan Design Week, and we’re enamored with the unique aesthetic that’s equal parts alien nation and woodland tranquility. These radiant pieces, made from wood and natural resin strips, were designed by Giancarlo Zema for the Avanzini Group and are currently on display at the Design in Nature exhibition in the Triennale Design Museum as part of the Milan Furniture Fair.

There are few things that seem to surprise one when discussing a new stool, but the pieces by Zema truly titillate the senses. What is particularly intriquing is the way in which when the lights are off the pieces are as attractive in theirown right. When lit up, however, they take on a whole new dynamic - activating a space in different ways depending on the color. Like organic sculptures these enigmatic stools are both sensuous to the touch and alluring by their electrical illuminating feature. They should be available in New York shortly - Inson Wood, Interior Designer New York City. ( www.insonwood.com)
