Shattered wood – Brent Comber

April 21st, 2011 by retail design blog

Brent Comber is well known for his shattered tables and stools made of solid wood. His work relies heavy on the beauty of nature and natural objects, and is eco-friendly at the same time – using pieces of wood that wolud otherwise be descarded. Now, at showrom of Obakki, a canadian store that showcases local designs, Brent Comber has made the largest ever design piece from shattered wood.

“This was my first piece inspired primarily by process, and the human need to create order out of chaos. I was curious to see if I could create random patterns by splitting, assembling, and juxtaposing different sizes, shapes, and grain patterns of wood, and whether human nature would compel me to create order out of such chaos.” Brent Comber
