As much a commentary on materials use as a functional design, the "Wood Today" concept chair uses pieces from the same tree to create a simple chair. Rhetorically asking "Can we go back?" (uh, nope), the chair seems to be both an indictment of the way we use natural resources and a warm embrace of embodied energy and the world of possibilities available to designers using a sustainable (when managed correctly) material. Hmm...to be pondered while sitting in a wooden chair. Designer: ::Richard Alex via ::Yanko Design
