Spontaneous Design

This Log Chop Bench is a one-off piece defined by one very unconventional process (to say the least). Designers David Long & Antoine Morris avoided concrete blueprints & lent their ax, log, & minimal sketches to a professional Lumberjill (you heard me) who carved out seat spaces with surgical precision. The rough hollows were then clad in fine, hand-sewn upholstery by a motorcycle saddle maker. A little unorthodox, but pretty damn sexy.

The bench was recently auctioned at the Stellar Living 2011 Contemporary Art & Design Auction for Mercer Union in Toronto, Ontario.
