BRENT COMBER’S FALLEN BRANCH FURNITURE:
Brent Comber innovative furniture collection caught my eye at ICFF. This unusual table is made entirely from alder branches collected at Brittania Beach, outside Vancouver. The designer dries the branches, fastens them together in rows with nails and glue, and then carves the resulting piles into stunning cubic shapes. The combination of organic materials and geometric lines gives this furniture its dynamic aesthetic. Alder is a renewable resource which grows all over the coasts of Comber’s native British Columbia.
