In this furniture factory, the showroom has no showcase. To tell the truth, it doesn't even have walls. Meet the designer creation, which plants trees that are already born with the shape of furniture.
Trendy Stairs - New projects are against sedentary lifestyle
Creativity is on the table - What distinguishes a pleasant and stimulating environment?
Instead of an industrial shed or an assembly line, rows of sprouts of oak, willow, ash and maple.
These are tree species that provide wood for quality furniture in England.
The difference to a common plantation is the blue frames attached to the trees.
When the branches grow, they gain predefined cuttings, stimulated by these molds.
The harvest is chairs, tables, lamps or frames, made without waste and with the quality that nature provides.
This naturally built furniture, in a kind of botanical handicraft, was created by Gavin Munro.
The idea for this method came when Munro worked as a gardener, and made furniture as a side enterprise.
Thinking about his mother's bonsai, and how some seemed to be shaped like chairs, he decided to gather the elements in the company that earned the name of Full Grown.
Each of the pieces is made of a single tree, which is born and grows for four years solely for this purpose.
For this reason, all are made without fittings or nails.
After “harvesting”, they gain cuts and polishing as a fine finish.
Because it takes a long time to get to the point, the pieces of furniture for sale will now only be delivered in a few years.
The chairs sell for £ 2,500 (13,000 reais).
Already the luminaires are priced between £ 1,000 and £ 1,500 (5,000 and 7,000 reais, respectively), on the official website of the brand - click here.
