A Well is a collision of two worlds: a skeleton of the luxury “Alanda” coffee table created by the Italian designer, Paolo Piva, and a specimen of common tansy. Tansy is a common plant, widespread in Poland. It has anti-parasitic properties. In the Middle Ages, it was used to perform abortions and poison neighbours: a weighted bunch of tansy was thrown into a well of the person to be poisoned. In spite of the European Union’s ban on the sale of tansy, the plant is available in herbal stores in Poland.
