Tzalam, known as the Caribbean walnut, is a tropical high-density wood that grows in Southern Mexico. Its color is a mixture between red and yellow, which ends up giving a cinnamon like tone and it is strong and resistant to weather conditions, water, and humidity.
The assembly of the pieces, the polishing and the final finish in natural oil is carried out manually.
Based on a profound mathematical research, Estudio Cerisola combines advanced technology with highly skilled craftsmanship, to create intricate pieces from high quality materials with an impeccable finish.
