repair through allowing organic destruction?

leave a comment »

Hmmm.. Im not sure if this is exactly repair. But i think these chairs and table by Kasper Hamacher are really interesting (love the contrast between the smooth wood and the dark, rough burns) so I wanted to include them anyway. They were created through burning out sections of the centre of the log, creating internal shape.  I suppose that the element of randomness created by the burns is then repaired by the other controlled and well finished elements of the chair, allowing the burn log to have a full function.
