Vivai del Sud bamboo mirrored screen from the Parma series consists of bamboo palm tree motif inlay on a 3-panel mirrored screen. These panels are expertly constructed from a padding over a wooden structure. On the front panels are mirrors and palm tree profiles made of bamboo (rattan) with the backs made of lacquered wood. In the spirit of Vivai del Sud, the use of trompe l’oeil creates an atmosphere of an oasis created by a presence of a palm trees.
