Designs that build on what nature has provided - these pieces are less about reshaping wood and more about celebrating it as a "found object". They respect the wood by featuring natural form as a major design element - man embraces nature. In each case, the human hand carefully sculpts, assembles or highlights. In a new twist on modern, minimalisim is applied to intervention instead of form.

Implications - With technology advancing at a rapid pace and overwhelming the general population, consumers are turning to organic products to provide them with a sense of familiarity. Corporations may capitalize on this emerging pattern by crafting products with nature-based design elements to counteract the technological aesthetics that currently overrun the marketplace.
