Ourobouros consist of 2 circles, one large (Diameter: 163cm) and one small (Diameter: 72cm), turned in wood and leaning against the wall. This gives the piece a kind of relaxed energy, a kind of contemporary nonchalance. The design plays with opposites; big versus small, dark versus light and gloss versus matte, symbolizing the eternal repetition in life. It is handmade, turned on a lathe from massive blocks of Walnut and maple.
MdSt-studio is very concerned about nature. Therefore they do not want to make a piece other than when they adjust content and form that reminds the buyer of the importance to keep our earth healthy and alive. MdSt works with local woods that are not accepted by the economic market, and works with a very low ecological footprint. The studio is able to make all the avant garde objects with only the help of hand tools or with electrical tools that are only used very shortly to arrive at the desired product. This enables the studio to show that it is possible to make sophisticated avant garde design with traditional hand tools and respect for the environment.
