Nucleo’s Jade Stools Crystallize 200-Year-Old Oak Branches

Turin, Italy-based design collective Nucleo has developed a series of extraordinary stools they called "Jade." Created by director Piergiorgio Robino, these unique cubic pieces were made by submerging organic material into a mold full of a liquid polymer. The technique evolved from the studio’s previous works, but the difference lies in the precious color and the embedded log, which was part of a 200-year-old oak tree.
