Hey! Welcome to the world of Des Palettos!
Des Palettos is the artisanal workshop in which I create works of art and furnishing accessories with reclaimed wood: each item has its own, different story to be told; it is handmade, painstaking attention has been paid to its creation and it has a minimum impact on the environment.
I re-invent the identity of wood strips that I creatively recycle to make decorative pictures, customised table tops, headboards and food boxes.
Using my hands, I transform something apparently useless into something that is alive, useful and beautiful. I bring out the soul of material that does not seem to have a future use, and yet it still has so much to give, and to say.
I consider each type of wood, with its own unique, captivating texture, a melody: it is just like an old forgotten sound that has lost its sheen and its verve, I fine-tune its high and low notes, cleaning up its sound quality to make it more in line with current times and full of emotion.
