The term has evolved to define anything made specifically from the rattan plant. The material is preferred by the wicker manufacturers because of its increased strength and durability compared to reeds and other fibers. Wicker, on the other hand, is the product resulted from weaving rattan, cane, willow, raffia and other natural materials. These are first cut into strips, dried and often soaked in water to become more flexible, after which they’re woven into wicker.
The Mallow sideboard from Alto is both simple and sophisticated, with a design that blends clean and simple lines with smooth and fluid curves. It has a frame made of painted iron mixed with wood veneer panels and polished stainless steel hardware. It’s the type of elegant accent piece you can put in a dining room, on a hallway but also in a living room or even in a bedroom.
Modern wicker was initially developed as a basket weaving technique. In time, it evolved into furniture. By the 17th century, in Northern Europe, wicker looked a lot like it does today. The trend soon spread all over the world and became as popular and as common as it is today. Then, in the mid 19th century it reached the United States where it was quickly industrialized and mass-produced.
The Diamond sideboard featured just now tells a beautiful story and that story continues with a new chapter: Metamorphosis.The process of the metamorphosis is most often associated with insects, being reminiscent of the way in which caterpillars transform into butterflies. This concept was applied to this Boca do Lobo classic and the result was the Diamond Metamorphosis, a sideboard that seeks to provoke a reaction and to become the center of attention.
