Between centers

Indoor furniture collection
Series of wooden furniture developed from its production system: woodturning between centers. The collection includes a stool, a banquette and a table made out of hard maple wood
and black-dyed birch wood. Woodturning consists in using a lathe to create revolution shapes. This process produces a 'signs' on the extreme of each piece created
by the'drive centre' and 'dead centre', which press the piece of wood to rotate it. Woodworkers usually remove these signs. Keeping those signs and using it as symbols, a link is generated to tell the life of the object inside the factory. Those symbols are the evidence that these pieces are made, one by one, with a lathe.
