TREE-NESS

TREE-NESS

Client: Schloss Hollenegg for Design
Curator: Alice Stori Liechtenstein
Photography: Federico Floriani
Date: May 2017

The collection takes inspiration from the Forests and Timber Yards of Austria, where tree’s are synonymous with the national identity, both as a feature of the landscape and as an architectural building material. Thinking of tree’s as source of natural beauty and as a resourceful construction material offers an interesting duality to create a collection around - a group of objects that depict the poetic yet practical nature of trees.

Responding to the exhibition theme of ‘Morphosis’ therefore became about translating wood as an essential material into new products and experiments that embody diverse kinds of ‘Tree-ness’. The core building blocks of this endeavour being cylindrical wooden dowels and 3D printed Bamboo, chosen as an opportunity to bring together artisanal making and ‘Hackspace’ type manufacturing into a single collection.

Adding and subtracting from these core materials became a resourceful and exploratory way to express different kinds of trees, and different kinds of purposes. The bowls, boxes, shelves and other homewares of the collection are suggested as useful objects and, furthermore souvenirs that illustrate the transformative and resourceful qualities of trees.
