Designer Tom Chung explores notions of value and luxury with his Fjällbjörk Diamant, a diamond made of wood.
Chung's wood diamonds are individually cut by cabinet makers at the Carl Malmsten School. Each diamond is cut from fjallbjork (mountain birch), an inexpensive wood found only in the mountains of Sweden.
"The wood diamond questions luxury while playing with the relationship between material and craftsmanship."
Construction and fabrication were executed by Hannes Lundin, Kim Sõderbergh, Lone Ohlin and Magnus Dahlén under the supervision of Leif Burman. Fjällbjörk Diamant is part of an ongoing series of objects that aim to tell the story of Carl Malmsten school.
