With its vibrant mix of colors and patterns, Davide G. Aquini's wooden buffet table design has distinct elements that remind of African tribal art. The sideboard is made from recycled wood that has been lacquered by specific sections at a time. Due to the process, not all of the painted surfaces are crisp, which creates the soft and hazy look of a textile.

Each layer of wood is a little bit different, which creates a 2D pattern on top of the 3D texture that comes from having the wooden pieces protrude from the doors at different distances. In contrast to the storage unit's colorful doors, the rest of the furniture piece is anchored with black paint to keep it from looking too busy.
