Makassar Ebony by Alpi

DESIGNER Piero Lissoni
The Macassar ebony is a variegated wood, black with brown streaks, that received much favour for its exceptional properties and highly decorative appearance. Macassar Ebony by Piero Lissoni for Alpi reproduces the original beauty, colour and veining to offer a sustainable product of great aesthetic worth. Makassar Ebony is part of the Legacy Collection, a selection of lost species all at risk or threatened with extinction or illegal to use. With this collection, Alpi has centred its research on reproducing the woods’ identity by means of fascinating manufacturing procedures, reaching the goal to replicate the material essence of each wood type. Unique and sustainable, the collection features ecological veneers that are replicas of their unattainable natural counterparts.
