Wooden Furniture Sculpted by Pontus Willfors Sprouts Unwieldy Roots and Limbs

Organic chair. Maple wood, 68 x 64 x 72 in.

Through his sculptural practice, artist Pontus Willfors says that he seeks to examine “aspects of nature that are viewed by our society as product, nuisance or waste.” One of his frequently recurring motifs is the form of tree branches and root systems that sprout from from everyday objects as seen in this collection of furniture pieces that remind us explicitly of the material’s origins.

Willfors was born in Sweden and now lives and works in LA. These sculptures and several other artworks were on view as part of his exhibition titled Homeland at Edward Cella Art+Architecture in 2015. (via iGNANT)
