Retree Project

 

Features that one would expect at rustic wood furniture like grain or bark are reproduced from binding agents and fibres. Due to the source of this composite which is plant based this process can be seen as regaining the initial shape of the highly processed material.

 

At first sight the object seems like an obvious copy of wooden features, that can often be seen on trashy plastic furniture, trying be something it clearly is not.


Considering the fact, that the composite actually is made from wood, the duplicate appears more like a reproduction of a possible former, ephemeral state of its matter.
