Log-In here

This clever log-hack can be seen at art gallery Färgfabriken in the outskirts Stockholm. Logs are supported by a welded construction which combines the support of crossfeet with table functionality. If you try a go at this yourselves – watch your feet – logs are heavy!!

As logs are really heavy, this other example, The Tree Trunk Bench by Jurgen Bey (available from Droog) combines your local log with some globally acknowledged design (The Tree Trunk Bench is part of the permanent collections of The International Design Museum Munich, Germany, High Museum of Art Atlanta, USA, and the Centraal Museum Utrecht, The Netherlands).

Bey offers the 3 cast bronze chair backs and lets the lumber be purchased locally, a process that most certainly make the shipping and receiving a lot easier. Of course, you´ll have to pay up…Its yours for approx €11,000…

In my book, that´s a clever way of addressing both our need to reduce transports, without compromising our need for design…
