The natural properties of wood are part of the design in the Broken collection by Jalmari Laihinen. Wood cracks, breaks, and has defects and Broken is an ongoing investigation into breaking wood. Often times, pieces with imperfections are discarded as undesirable, but their value should be considered unique. For this reason, the connecting parts, for example the legs of stools and tables, are broken and have wood splinters at the break points. Laihina’s work combines joinery, carving, and furniture design with the goal of producing playful, thought-provoking work. Would you dare to make a statement in your home with furniture like this?
