Valentin Loellmann Benches and Stools

Furniture designer Valentin Loellmann will be showing a new collection of stools and benches as part of an exhibition starting in April at Galerie Gosserez in Paris. To produce the Fall/Winter furniture, Loellmann used mortise and tenon joints to connect hazel branches to an oak top. A mixture of sawdust and glue was used to smooth over the connections, producing a seamless, organic form. The legs were then burned and treated with wax, resulting in an interesting visual contrast between the smooth, light top and the matte black legs.
