Return a Tree

This little wooden cube contains a tree seed. The idea is that the box, when planted, will slowly rot, the seeds will sprout, and it will finally grow into the very tree that the cube was made of. Either curly birch, pine, alder, spruce or aspen "trees" are available. The designer Jouko Kärkkäinen works mostly with wood, but usually in much bigger and more elaborate projects. This little tree casing reflects the essence of Finnish lifestyle and design; simplicity, basic needs and love of nature. :: Design Forum, Finland
