For a combination of natural materials – wood and resin – the Bright Woods offer a vision of futuristic style as they glow in the dark. However, the natural curves of the objects reflect the aim of Giancarlo Zema in finding inspiration for his designs through nature. With a mix of natural beauty and illuminated resin layers flashing a number of different colors including pink, orange, purple and white, this collection becomes the perfect addition to any indoor or outdoor space.
