An inside-out tree – completely useless, but interesting. If you saw a tree into four precise vertical pieces and stick them back together inside out, then you’ve got a straight beam of maximum efficiency and rounded quarters of wood. What more could you want; hardly any waste, a lovely grain structure and a good story – but a lot of work and actually nonsensical.
Piet Hein Eek has built his business around old materials, saving these discarded pieces of wood and working outside of the circuit of mass production. His instantly recognizable work considers the tension between modernity and tradition, waste and sustainability. Piet Hein Eek's work is sold in numerous galleries worldwide.View designer’s page
