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
