Pair of bamboo inlayed palm tree motif mirrored screens from the ‘Parma’ series. The pair of panels can also be used as a four-panel screen with additional hinges upon request. These panels are expertly and exquisitely constructed from a padding over a wooden structure – on the fronts are mirrors and palm tree profiles made of bamboo (rattan) with the backs completely lined with bamboo. In the spirit of Vivai del Sud, the use of trompe l’oeil creates an atmosphere of an oasis created by a presence of palm trees.
