Earth Stone Wood by The Whole Elements
Updated: Jan 27
Earth Stone Wood is a multifunctional modular furniture that refers to the pagan spirituality of ancient Slavs. The form of the ESW furniture is a naturalistic study of a specific quartzite rock Anna Bera have found in a forest.
The aim of the project was to create a functional piece of furniture by bringing a fragment of natural landscape indoors. This ambition was based on the assumption that this landscape, just like the nature in general, can be characterised by a coexistence of order and chaos. Due to its dynamic nature, the irregular solid, inspired by the trigonal crystal system, changes completely its visual aspect depending on light and perspective.
