Designed by Tim Vranken
This sculpture is obtained through extensive research into the properties of Yellow Pine. It consists of ellipses, which are sawn against the grain so that the characteristic wood grain of Yellow Pine is made visible. This specific wood texture is created by the play between the flaming plain sawn wood and striped quarter sawn wood.
Then the age-old technique of ‘Shou Sugi Ban’ is applied to the furniture. A technique in which the wood is burned and thus charred. Again, Yellow Pine forces a unique result, because the difference in softness between its spring and summer wood is so intense. This creates a deep structure and a subtle hue in brown, black and even gold.
This furniture is interesting to behold and experience from every point of view. Each side reflects a different feeling and a different composition.
