Design by Jurgen Bey, 1999.
With the Tree-Trunk Bench, a fallen tree has a new life as a seat. With the addition of three bronze classical chair backs, the Tree-Trunk Bench becomes a proper piece of furniture, a crossing between nature and culture. Designer Jurgen Bey makes it clear that it is ridiculous to transport trees when they are locally available. Therefore only the three cast bronze chair backs for the Tree-Trunk Bench are for sale.
The Tree-Trunk Bench by Droog is part of the museum collections at Neue Pinakothek Die Neue Sammlung - The International Design Museum (Munich, Germany), High Museum of Art (Atlanta, USA), and Centraal Museum (Utrecht, The Netherlands).
Tree trunk not included.
