Israel-based industrial designer Hilla Shamia wanted to create furniture that you don't see everyday, so she fused aluminum and wood into one. However, the process isn't just simply combining the two materials, but rather she pours the aluminum directly into the wooden crevices, beautifully burning it and casting it into the body of the pieces.
