We studied the charts and diagrams that alchemists meticulously plotted in the search to transform base metals into noble metals, such as gold, silver and copper. The result is a curated material study. Layered in luxury, modern marquetry is interpreted via pattern & data-inspired inlays for an exquisite flooring statement.
