Yoav Avinoam, a student at the Bexalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, has produced a series of wooden furniture from resin and wood shavings:
By using sawdust waste from the Wood industry, as a response to the way we look at our usage and exploitation of materials in modern culture. The sawdust (taken from different kinds of woods) is being pressed with resin into a mold that already contains all of the object parts, the opportunity was exploring new ways of integration between the legs of the furniture and the sawdust through expansion of the joints, this and the way the sawdust crumbles toward the edges creates a new material esthetics to once destined to be waste material.
We love the effect when turned upside down: it looks like the sawdust has just piled up, to be swept away at any moment.
Many more shots after the jump, and a peek into Avinoam's process.
