“Knot Round Stool” from the “According to the Grain” project.
This project highlights the quality of a wood knot, the character of which is often treated as a defect and neutralized in industrial processing. By chiseling down 12mm from a flat surface and chiseling out the knots, its three-dimensionality and texture are enhanced and its unique materiality become palpable to the casual viewer. The surface can now reveal more secrets and help the user imagine what this material once looked like in its natural state.
Each piece is unique, and may differ from the image.
