International Wood - Inspired by Nature Series

Trees are one of nature’s most spectacular creations. They provide an organic, renewable palette of wood species in amazing colors. Craftspeople who work with exotic species are often inspired to seek more ways to interact with wood. The unique grain structure, color variations and performance characteristics of woods from around the globe are a powerful medium. Sometimes the simplicity of the material allows the creator to focus on design. In other cases the exotic wood expresses different relationships, from spatial geometry to the ways people interact with the environment. Each project in the Inspired by Nature series below tells a story. The designs reach beyond the application to engage, inform and inspire.
