The hull of Monocoque Palle Canoe is made of a combination of copper-woven carbon fiber and classic teak wood. The copper wire weaved in the carbon gives depth to the texture and shimmers under the sunlight making the surfaces come alive, mimicking the shimmering sun reflecting on the water a canoe that is poetic in its making, yet technically strong, durable and light. The teak surface is hand laid by Maestri d’Ascia, one of the oldest and most revered artisanal crafts in Genova. The streamlined design provides a place to tuck away the oars on the side a subtle homage to the fins on a Cadillac.
BorromeodeSilva is currently working on integrating a small electric motor.
