The design concept is linked to the intrinsic character of a natural material like wood, which is also a basic, recognizable, eclectic and adaptable one. An archetypal leaf that recurs indefinitely, following a lilting rhythm that moves visually the surface of the wooden floor. The approach can generate abstract compositions in which the original track dissolves into repetition and, transforming itself, it can be read with new graphic values.
