Moody design and furniture are super trendy and hot now, and if you want something of that kind, we are sharing right one of these today. Designer Marcin Rusak’s series of resin furniture, patterned with leaves and flowers trapped in the surfaces, is right what you need, it’s gorgeous!
There’s a console, a coffee table, a sculpture and a wall that feature leaves of tropical plants frozen in the resin. Rusak’s Flora Noir range also includes screens, lamps and tables made forming blocks of black resin with the flowers encased, but then slicing them up and reassembling the strips to create fragmented patterns.
The designer sources his natural materials from florists, which throw out tons of waste flowers every day, he picks up what they don’t need. Rusak selects the flowers and carefully arranges them inside an empty mold. The translucent resin is then poured into the mold. When the pieces are solidified, the flowers and leaves appear like fossils disappearing into the material. Three types of metal are used to house the resin blocks: aluminum, brass and steel. The first two are simply finished with wax, while the steel is typically coated to prevent rusting.
