Young French designer Benjamin Graindorge, as represented by Ymer & Malta gallery, will presenting his works from June 11 to June 16 as part of Design Miami. The work we see here is called Fallen Tree. This striking piece of furniture that's half tree, half bench is made of oak wood and glass. The limited edition piece asks the viewer to remember where that bench once came from.
"Wood is a living material, the industrial tool I use as a designer has rationalized it, and it has become an effective material. The FallenTree bench is intended to reveal the wood’s DNA, to express its deepest nature by attempting to highlight the living fiber it is made of, I want to expose and bring it to life to reveal its primal identity: strong, indomitable and above all magnificent." - Benjamin Graindorge
