Every piece in this 10-metre-long furniture set has been made from a solid old oak block by the German sculptor Thomas Rösler.
This environmental project by Agnieszka Gradzik and Wiktor Szostalo came into life as a humorous attempt at illustrating “100 Ways to Hug a Tree Without Looking Stupid“. The sculptures on display were made from fallen tree branches and wood waste. The artist’s ‘wicker people’ hugged trees in seven countries around the world. However, after taking part in the UN World Climate Summit, the project took on more serious ecological overtones. How long will the people living on Earth feel connected with nature?
