This very slim sculptural piece, in casted aluminum, is inspired by water lilies and plants. The object is a high piece of furniture, designed as a small console for an entry hall, on which one can leave his keys, wallet or phone.
The structure of a leaf is built so it can hang at the end of the branch. The fold of the leaf acts as a structural reinforcement, preventing it to brake when it rains or snows.
The furniture is designed for it to seem as if it can not stand on the ground by itself, but the foot of the console is quite heavy and therefore the object stands perfectly on the ground.
