Comments Off on Henry Baumann Creates Incredible Sculptural Furniture From Construction Site Waste

Designer Henry Baumann has created an incredible series of sculptural lamps and chairs by recycling big wooden cable drums often found on building sites. He discovered that these drums were simply too big and heavy for one person to handle, so he experimented with cutting them in order to make them manageable. By approaching the big wooden round plates with a single spiral cut, he was able to make an interesting transformation yet still respect the integrity of the original object. The only element added to the original material to hold it altogether was a little bit of glue.

Comments Off on Soaring Three-Story High GSky Green Wall Brings a Historic Building to Life

GSky Plant Systems has installed a beautiful 1226 sq. ft. living wall in the atrium of a five-story historic building, 888 Brannan. Located below a massive skylight, the verdant GSky green wall is an unprecedented living artwork that breathes life into the building. GSky’s design inspiration for this living wall came from the famous San Francisco hills that make up the city’s urban landscape. Painted with a unique palette of 7042 four-inch potted plants, the green wall is a well-balanced union of nature, art and history. As we spend less time outdoors, the more we become disconnected from the natural world that is essential for our emotional, physical and mental well-being. A living green wall is a great way to bring nature back into our lives, as well as life and harmony to human-made structures. + GSky The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
