New wave furniture:
Gavin Munro is a maker of furniture, but he doesn’t use carpentry tools to do it. Instead, he trains the trees on his farm to grow into the form of chairs, tables, and other pieces. The result is very artistic. Located near Derby, England, his farm has oak, willow, ash, and sycamore trees. When the trees are just saplings, he uses molds to make them grow a certain way. To attain his final product, he also prunes and grafts the trees’ branches. It takes a long time for a piece of furniture to be made in this fashion – between four and eight years.
