The collection of boxes for the “Out of the Woods” project result from a holistic approach to the way we use resources from the forest, paying tribute to the properties and beauty of alternative resources from the forest. The boxes play with constructive proportions for the different forest resources used in its multiple surfaces: wooden details and resin-based material surfaces of diverse composition. Species of trees, for example white pine, red pine, and yellow pine as well as their bark, needles, leaves and industrial residues but also charcoal as a residue of the production of natural tar combine into a palette of sensible possibilities the collection aims to showcase.
It has also been of utmost importance for the studio to highlight the desire of advocating an entangled and balanced relationship to our natural environments and their resources, rather than a unidirectional alternative leading to the next excessive exploitation. The objects of “Out of the Woods” thus express a sense of diversity and belonging: to nature to our human context and to each other.
