Some ideas are so deep-rooted in our minds that we don’t even think twice or consider alternatives for them. For instance, when furnishing a living room, it’s a given to have a coffee table somewhere at the center of the whole setting. But what if you were to rethink this idea and choose instead of give up the table altogether and to fill the space with something else or to have two or more coffee tables instead of just one?
Designs such as Bolanzas are suspended somewhere between sculpture and furniture. In fact, the entire collection is elevated to the rank of art, going beyond the basics of functionality and design. Its strong artistic personality is the defining characteristic and the attention to details is almost overwhelming.
Kaspar Hamacher is a Belgian designer who uses wooden logs to create unique stools. The method used to get the desired result is rather unusual. The stools are created by setting a log on fire. The burnt away sections shape the log until it finally starts to look like a stool. The bark is also stripped from the log and the result is a clean and artistic form. The project is called Ausgebrannt which means “burnt out” in German.
