The Bark collection opens its doors to Christmas, bright decorations to light up the atmosphere and bring to the home the magic of the festivities.Bark for Christmas is the ideal ornament for those who do not want to renounce to decoration rites and to create a festive atmosphere even without the traditional Christmas tree. Magnetic decorations allow you to enrich and personalise your tree without photographs, greeting cards or anything else, transforming Bark for Christmas into a poetic container in which you can keep affections and memories.
Designed by Michael Boucquillon and Donia Maaoui, the Bark collection - from the English bark - was inaugurated in 2015 by the homonymous centerpiece. The authors drew inspiration from their home, Boucquillon House: a place of experimentation, meditation and work for living in symbiosis with nature. The Bark series freweork recalls the bark of trees around the house. The result is a highly poetic collection in which every single object shows, in form or in function, a continuous and harmonious dialogue with nature.
