Andreas Ahlqvist

Andreas's work aims to highlight the waste in production and it questions the notion of perfect wood in furniture making. I'm inspired by this project. Wastes are a big issue nowadays and we are constantly surrounded by wooden products that seem to be ecofriendly, but what is important to think about is where does wood come from, how do they act in order to respect the environment? I'm totally seduced by wood, but I appreciate these products because they don't only use virtuous materials, but they also show off their essence. Moreover, I like the idea of creating joints with this kind of molded waste. Joints are a big problem in furniture, because they often need to be strengthen with metal joints and small components.
