Medoc Natural Genius was created by Michele De Lucchi and Philippe Nigro. Its original and unmistakable trapezoidal shape draws on the tapered shape of wooden logs. At the same time, Medoc's design creates visual continuity with old planks, "when planks were not straightened so as to avoid wasting wood unnecessarily". The imprecise sawn cut surface (or sawn wood technique) requested by the designers enhances the light effects, the tactile feeling and 3D effect of Listone Giordano's French Oak. The colour shades obtained with natural oil-based treatments give Oak a distressed look by simulating the effects of exposure to the elements.
