German-based designer Thomas Schnur has created a simple chair made from tree trunks. The wooden chair has a very simple design. The seat and backrest of the chair sit on a base made of interlocking wooden logs. According to the designer, “In forests and villages we encounter many utility objects crafted out of tree trunks. Usually the language of these elementary products is formed due to pragmatic reasons. To our industrial informed society these sylvan items often appear rough and solid but also idyllic and indigenous. The structural handling, the transformation, the involvement of the symbolic power of these objects built the core process of developing the Forest Chair.”
