From @ThomasSchnur, a chair crafted from tree trunks.

The chair consists of a simple seat and back resting on an interlocking saddle notched series of round logs, like the ones seen in the corners of log-built homes.


Says Schnur, "In forests and villages we encounter many utility objects crafted out of tree trunks. Usually the language of these elementary products is formed due to pragmatic reasons."


"To our industrial informed society these sylvan items often appear rough and solid but also idyllic and indigenous."


"The structural handling, the transformation, the involvement of the symbolic power of these objects built the core process of developing the Forest Chair." More at Thomas Schnur.
