Anke Weiss, an Amsterdam based designer, has created this Bonsai Tree Table by hand, using branches and epoxy glue.

Since the little Asian trees are small, Anke Weiss had to use 150 bonsai trees in order to make this table.

Although I like how nature is sometimes infused into art or furniture, I have to say this twisty, turny table is a little scary looking!

Implications - Consumer priorities have shifted dramatically due to increased environmental concerns. Environmental products are now at the forefront of market popularity, and furniture such as this Bonsai Tree Table exemplify natural ways to add style to the home. Companies which incorporate eco-friendly products into their lines will attract these eco-conscious consumers, and will gain a positive environmental image.
