He Found A Tree Branch On The Side Of The Road And Created This With It.
Art is everywhere, we just have to allow everyday things to inspire us. For Chilean artist Sebastian Errazuriz it was walking on the street and coming across a broken branch in the capital city of Santiago. The designer took his latest find to his workshop to give it a new purpose.
Based in New York, Errazuriz turned the branch and made it into a simple and elegant shelf. He named his latest creation “Bilbao” after the street the tree branch was found on. This is not the first time Errazuriz has used this medium to design furniture.
To create his latest design, Errazuriz sanded the branches to a smooth finish and painting it in a black.
Although his latest project is very organic, the artist admits to wanting his pieces to be distinct.
“It’s important to me that a project consist of just a little twist. I ultimately want people to see the obvious, the everyday differently," says Errazuriz.
The designer twisted and turned the tree branch so it could lie flat on the wall.
The Chilean designer encourages to, "look at one of the simplest forms of furniture design and to forget that we’re talking about furniture."
Next, an ordinary bookshelf hides a very cool secret.
