I am in awe of the work by Brazilian artist/designer Hugo França, which I was introduced to by Seesaw Designs. He takes discarded materials and gives them a “second chance” by dramatically transforming them into pieces of art & furniture, which are intended to mend the relationship between man and the tree versus being purely functional. The unique cracks, holes, forms, etc. of the trees inspire each individual piece. The intention and the result are profoundly beautiful!
