Layer by Paola Navone for Aldo Morellato 

The Layer console, designed by Architect Paola Navone for the opening Symposium of the Aldo Morellato Foundation held in June 2011, celebrates the beauty of the various essences of wood. 
The console is characterized by a full identification of the design piece with its structure, made of stacked and assembled wooden planks, perfectly reflecting Morellato's eye for details and craftsmanship's quality.

Woodpecker by Tale
The Woodpecker notebooks were inspired by the wish of expressing the beauty of nature and for a harmonious world, by reminding us the natural link between wood and paper. A multisensory experience is guaranteed by the intaglio printing technique which recreates woods texture and grain.
The Woodpecker notebook won the 2012 Red Dot Design Award. 

»The jury was fascinated by the idea of designing a notebook that creates the impression of being made of real wood, thus highlighting the treasures of nature.«
