“In a world driven by technological advancement, it is crucial to pause and reconnect with the organic essence of life, the material. Through ‘Still Wood’ and ‘Still Human,’ we aim to evoke emotions, tell stories, and preserve heritage by showcasing the art of craftsmanship in its purest form,” explains Micael Carvalho, Creative Director at HOMMÉS.

The studio poses a fundamental question: ‘The past is made of memories, and the future is made of expectations. And your present is made of what?’ This inquiry serves as the cornerstone of the exhibition, embodying the essence of design’s role in celebrating present human artistry while preserving this invaluable legacy for the future.

“At the heart of our exhibition is a deep reverence for nature and a commitment to the history of design. Through ‘Still Wood,’ we aim to showcase the exquisite beauty of marquetry while highlighting the importance of preserving this heritage and the artistry for future generations, ” says Carvalho. 


The main theme of Milan Design Week 2024 will be “Materia Natura”, a concept that encourages a thoughtful design culture by delving into the deep connection between these two fundamental words. As attendees immerse themselves in the studios’ exhibitions, they will witness a harmonious blend of tradition and innovation, where matter and artistry coexist seamlessly. 

Visitors can behold center tables, bedside tables, and more, each intricately crafted with wood inlays that narrate individual tales—a mosaic woven from memories and dreams. Every meticulous detail embodies the beauty of the interplay of colors and textures.

From intricately designed furniture to exquisite decorative pieces, “Still Wood” and “Still Human” glimpse a future where conscious design shapes our world. Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend.

Still Life, Still Human, Still Wood.
