Daniel Svahn’s Picnic Wooden Bench Resurrects Unwanted Wood

 With rising environmental consciousness, many designers are coming up with innovative furniture pieces with environmentalism as the main concept. Along the same lines, Swedish designer Daniel Svahn creates beautiful and functional furniture pieces by reusing trash and other unwanted things. He has come up with a conceptual wooden bench, dubbed Picnic, by making use of wood that succumbs to the devastating storm and fell down.

His conceptual wooden furniture sculpture was displayed at the Wood Punk exhibition held in Stockholm, which narrated a story about the Swedish woods, idyllic road rest stops and the aftermath of devastating storms. By creating Picnic he gave a second life to the otherwise surplus and unwanted wood of the storm felled trees.

The beauty of his functional furnishing object lies in its simplicity. The simple design adds value to the wood that would either have been burnt or thrown away in the landfills.

The conceptual bench measures 98 cm in width, 110 cm in height and 120 cm in depth.
