Comments Off on The Treebox is an amazing modern home set high up in the treetops

This gorgeous wooden home in Texas captures the experience of living high up in the treetops. Designed by Wernerfield , the PH2 Treebox is raised several meters off the ground, and its living quarters are sheltered by the surrounding forest. Wernerfield was commissioned to design an addition to an existing split-level house on a wooded property in Dallas. The team responded with a design that takes its cues from the form of the main house.

A metal staircase leads up to the dwelling area. The home’s exterior is clad in charred wood , which is both discrete and durable. The interior comprises a guest quarters and an office space (separated by a breezeway), and it has a minimalist, warm material palette that accentuates the connection to the forest. + Wernerfield Via Dezeen Photos by Robert Yu

Comments Off on Sedes,-is.’s Eume Chair Is a Handcrafted Seat Made with Burnt Wood

Thermotreated chestnut has been used to bring a new chair into the Sedes,-is.  project. The design recalls the old Japanese torii ; a wood structure that resists the passage of the time, and symbolically marks the transition from the profane to the sacred. By burning the wood without oxygen, the durability of the piece is improved and more character is added. For Sedes,-is., the Eume chair is not just a seat, but a little monument to the forest of Eume damaged by uncontrolled fires last summer in Spain. + Sedes,-is.
