Eye Catchy – The Log Chop Bench
Designers David Long & Antoine Morris have made one very unusual Log Chop Bench with a defined unconventional process. they avoided concrete blue prints and took ax, log and minimal sketches to a local professional “Lumberjill” who carved out seats with surgical precision. The rough carved out seats were then cladded with fine hand-sewn upholstery by a motorcycle saddle maker. The output is pretty sexy .
The bench was recently auctioned at the Stellar Living 2011 Contemporary Art & Design Auction for Mercer Union in Toronto, Ontario
