The Woods by StokkeAustad and Andreas Engesvik

, , , , By Catherine Lazure-Guinard

The Woods is the second collaboration between the Norwegian design studios StokkeAustad and Andreas Engesvik, Oslo. The inspiration was found in the forests and the lights of the North. A tree changing colours and transparency through the seasons is a fascinating process which was captured in this glass object.

“Our ambition was to work sculpturally — without any specific function other than the purely decorative. A renewed interest in the field of craftsmanship, tradition and new categories – has brought us into an area and expressions that we wanted to explore further. Thus, reducing the gap between industrial design and what we know as arts and crafts.”

The unique, free standing glass sculpture The Woods, is a made out of hand blown glass. Each sculpture consists of seven trees — joined in two separate sections.
