Un ramo caduto diventa una funzionale libreria

Chilean-born designer Sebastian Errazuriz did not have to look far for the inspiration behind his latest functional sculpture undertaking. The activist-designer-artist (not necessarily in that order) found this fallen branch lying around the streets of Santiago, Chile, and took it to his workshop to transform it so it could hug a flat wall and live its new life as a shelf.

Entitled ‘Bilbao’ for the name of the street in Santiago where it was found, the shelf is part of the tree series, which attempts to let natural forms found in nature dictate the direction of the design.
