la SINFONÍA de los ÁRBOLES table is a search for poetry in design... A forest as seen from the ground is like columns fading away into the sky. We cannot see them from above; the forest from a bird’s eye view resembles a smooth carpet. Verticality becomes horizontality and still remains unified in its duality.
