Michael Kukla made these amazing sculptures. He wants to create organic surfaces by drilling and grinding out cellular-like structures in marble or plywood slabs. Very impressive work.

Osso

April 12th, 2011

Osso is a new series of chairs designed by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec for the Italian brand Mattiazzi. The chairs are made of oak, maple or ash, but it’s their production process that I find interesting. The pieces are milled by a digitally controlled CNC machine. This is probably one of the few ways to produce this design on a larger scale.

FRAMED

March 22nd, 2011

FRAMED by Anton Burdakov is just a piece of wood, a nail and some thread, but I would definitely put it up on my wall.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted some works by Ron van der Ende, but Designboom reminded me today of how great his artworks are. These bas-reliefs are made of salvaged wood keeping their original colors. Impressive.

 

Ausgebrannt

March 4th, 2011

Ausgebrannt is a series of stools and low tables by Kasper Hamacher. I actually don’t really like them, but the production process looks like fun. By the way, ausgebrannt is German for burnt out.

Soft Wood

June 15th, 2010

Soft Wood is a series of chairs designed by Veronika Wildgruber that appear at first to be made in fabric with the soft appearance of pillows. But in reality they are sculpted in solid wood. The chairs trick the mind because the surface and texture connotes the opposite of what we think and know about the characteristics of wood.
