description: Like falling leaves, this mobile's organic shapes suggest the cycles of nature. The piece is named for after the Moraceae, or fig, plant family by which the leaves are inspired. Crafted from rich cherry wood veneer, the leaves' halves are tabbed together along the spine, giving the components dimension and a radiating grain that suggests the veins of a leaf. Oval perforations let a bit of light through to enhance the airy effect.
Environmentally responsible wood veneer yields considerably more usable material from each tree than solid wood lumber. Mora is available in Forest Stewardship Council-certified cherry veneer.
