The console is designed from recovered unusual black trunks of Oak trees found in a small Alpine peat. Radiocarbon dating has revealed that this wood dates from the 5th century. Peatland is a wet area that accumulates deposit of dead plant material where the water at the ground surface is acidic, anaerobic and low in nutrients. Deprived of oxygen, the buried wood undergoes the process of fossilization. The peat protects the wood from normal decay, while the underlying peat with iron salts and other minerals react with the tannins in the wood, gradually giving it a distinct dark brown to almost black colour. The designers select the most suitable trunks and cut planks preserving their natural erode edges. Using their innovative resin process, they emphasise this precious wood with transparent resin volumes resembling the water which has preserved the logs for almost a millennium.
