The COMB Construct Bench.


It’s difficult to believe that a design as beautiful as this is composed almost entirely of recycled materials. Named after the shape that makes up its two flexible seating points, COMB is constructed from blown out bike inner tubes and plywood leftovers. The bike tubes form the stretchy surface for the honeycomb-shaped sections that sink in to create a comfy, form-fitting seat when one drops down. When they stand, it pops back up to form a planar surface with the rest of the bench again. It’s the softer side of wood seating.

“Lo/Fi” Fashion Design By Sruli Recht.

The featured “Cropped Militia Jacket” and the “Loose Sweater”, made from walnut wood material on a wool base.  Once grown, the wood is deconstructed into pieces, and then attached to a textile base, creating a material that is half wood, half textile, and completely fragmentary.  The “Wooden Textiles” in this collection are made with Elisa Strozyk, uniquely for this collection.  The simplified look of polygonal geometry is meant to represent breaking the body down into a pixelated memory.

Tokaji Wine Bottle by Szabolcs Moldovan


general 01 02 03 05

Take a look at the stunning packaging design for Tokaji wine bottle created by Szabolcs Moldovan, Romania. All elements of the packaging are hand carved by an artist, further giving it value. This would be possible due to the fact that the aim of the product is not mass production. Materials used are wood and metal/precious metals. The wood wine holder symbolizes a cathedral that protects the wine, and even after the wine is consumed, the packaging can be reused as an artwork on a shelf or table, while the label that contains precious metals can be taken off the bottle and hanged on the wall of wine cellars, to further push the idea of reusable packaging, packaging that has value, and should not be thrown away or discarded. With all the work that goes into packaging these days, it is still heartbreaking to see that they end up in the trash.

Spectral Density Estimation is a pair of sculptures commissioned by the SECCA and the Winston-Salem Symphony orchestra. Two sound recordings of the first organized tuning were taken at the last 2 orchestra performances of the 2012 / 2013 season. Each recording was analyzed and transformed into a spatial arrangement of the audio frequencies over time. The resulting geometry was then carved into a block of wood from a cedar tree, that had fallen outside the museum.

Baitogogo by Henrique Oliveira

Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira’s striking new installation “Baitogogo” has now opened at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. The complex “network of organic materials” sees existing concrete and plaster pillars transform midway into contorted and intertwining organic material reminiscent of the Amazon rainforest. The piece is typical of Oliveira’s work, which often uses materials from the Brazilian urban landscape such as wood taken from fences surrounding and blocking access to construction sites. Through these materials, Oliveria aims to highlight the organic growth of São Paulo’s favelas as well as the “endemic and parasitic nature of these constructions.” Inspiration is also drawn from medical textbooks and studies of physical pathologies such as tumors.
