Role: designer, maker (individual work)
Birch plywood, Willow, 2014
These are the final projects of Wood Studio Minor course @Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture. The goal was to make two stools in pair with the theme of roots, branches , a trunk and a treetop as an inspiration to our design, one with and the other without the fine finishing such as sanding and glueing.
Inspired by the mathematical geometric symmetry of nature, my idea was to make the cross section interesting to remind users of that of tree trunk.
It was exhibited in Museum of Finnish Architecture as a part of exhibition, ‘Annual Rings 1994–2014. A New Generation of Wood Architecture’ Oct 8 – Jan 25 2014
*More photos and the process of making are available here.
Inspired by the mathematical symmetry of nature, I tried to make something that has an interesting cross section that reminds of one of the tree trunk.
Willow, Willow skin
The willow stool made at Kari Virtanen’s workshop, Fiskars village, Finland as the final classes of Wood Studio. Kari worked as a cabinet maker with Alvar Aalto and the founder of the furniture company, Nikari.
From cutting and gathering material to sawing and finishing, all the process is done by traditional hand tools without automated machines.
My idea was to continue the previous concept: make the cross section interesting in terms of the mathematical symmetry in nature so that it reminds of the section of tree trunk. To do that, I weaved willows together to make some spiral shape on top of my stool. Willow skin was used to fasten the stool. No glue was applied.
