This collection is the result of two years of material research on natural flowers and resin. The tests led to two materials: Flora Perma, stable and permanent, and Flora Temporaria which evolves and transforms visually over time while maintaining its structural integrity. The contrast between the hard black resin and the colored fragile flowers create an aesthetically pleasant composition. The flowers find a second life after being discarded: once processed and treated they maintain their beauty through the help of resin.
