Callas, synonymous in Greek with beauty in flowers and design, is the name of the bench in the Botânica collection, developed for Etel by Etel Carmona and Inês Schertel as a tribute to the slow design concept. Fully handcrafted in a prized species of wood, and the ideal fulfillment of the intimate union between art and nature, Callas takes its character from the delicate woolen petals (also fashioned by hand) enveloping the structure. Flowers are the theme unifying the whole collection, which includes the Camelia screen and Lily lamp. Their presence, in addition to offering a tribute to the world of botany, will enhance the acoustics of the settings where these furnishings are placed. Inês Schertel, in addition to contributing to the design of the products, has chosen to create the collection by adopting ancient hand-crafted techniques for working with wool.
