When we choose to work on a desk made of wood, we know that it has ‘memory’. In a fast-changing world, we look for things that afford stability. An environment of hand-worked wood is capable of transmitting feelings; amongst them the sensation of the passing of time, heritage, permanence, stability and companionship. On this occasion, Muebles Picó is presenting an example of classic carpentry from Valencia, the principal birthplace of industrial furniture in Spain. In its private museum we discover some identifiable traits of the company’s DNA, such as colorful marquetry work. In answer to what defines them, Muebles Picó has stated their work lies in the hands of master craftsmen; those who carry out the cutting, the marquetry and finishing of their pieces. One defining characteristic of classical furniture making is how the final form accentuates the raw material and how the organic, often irregular qualities of walnut wood are incorporated into the final piece. The sheets that contain these grains and burls are hand selected and combined one by one.
