Wood Design

  1. The Wooood workshop refashions a classic toy for every age: the wooden top. To become children again, to grow up with your kids, to explain them the importance of a gesture, or to challenge your friends, wSpeed is the evolution of a tradition. It is a finely shaped object, small and exceptionally easy to handle, even as an antistress toy or a good-luck charm. Spinning it is a challenge to its balance. When it stands still, you can admire its distinctive shape, display it or just keep it close at hand. wSpeed is exclusively handcrafted using cuttings from valuable solid wood, so it encourages the intensive and ecological use of such a precious material. Thanks to the various types of wood used and to hand-turning, wSpeed has a unique shape and an inimitable texture. Each piece distinguishes for its speed, stability, balance and type of momvement.

  2. Q.bi is a unique magnet because each piece is handcrafted using woodwork cuttings. It also gives you a chance to handle wood in one of the most elementary shapes, the cube, thus rediscovering this material as a toy.
    Our extraordinary product is made employing ancient techniques and natural materials. It is immediate and easy to use. Q.bi inspires your creativity: it is a brain teaser, you can use it to display your photos and notes, or just to leave a sign of your passage.
    The cubes attract and repulse each other until they find their perfect composition. Choose as many cubes as you like and give shape to a number of different combinations. Have fun building new shapes and inventing new uses!
    Q.bi is made exclusively with woodwork cuttings from valuable solid wood, so it encourages the intensive and ecological use of such a precious material.

  5. We visited Josh Vogel of Blackcreek Mercantile & Trading Co. in late 2010 and kick started this year with a feature on the wood sculptor based in Kingston, New York. Our experience with him was so profound that we knew we had to pay another visit. This time, to document his story as part of our series. The result is nothing like we've ever done. This film gives little background on who Josh Vogel is, read our feature for more details. Instead it explores the idea that turning wood is a reductive process that in essence is a step back in time. As the wood loses a layer, the years are taken away. This abstract idea is a constant that Josh is very aware whenever his chisel touches the bark and steady peels away the rings of time. http://www.thescoutmag.com

    Nestled in the north eastern corner of Zimbabwe’s industrial community are an intimate team producing some of the most sought after pieces of furniture the country has to offer. Since the massive decline of Zimbabwe’s economy in 2004 a lot of its industries have slowed down to just a trickle, making it difficult for regular men and women to make a living on regular jobs. One community that has continued to strive despite the stagnant economic atmosphere is Adam Bede, a company preserving age old craft and techniques to produce the most premium hand crafted furniture in the region. - vimeo.com/137892483
