The age-old art of marquetry comes back to life in these two trays, which reinterpret ancient and precious wood- working techniques. Like in a Renaissance workshop, the graphic designs and geometrical patterns of Tarsia trays are created by hand, placing together different pieces of the same material, cut according to a precise design and masterfully assembled within a simple, linear frame.
