For its latest range of contemporary furniture, Canadian studio Odami used the trunk and limbs of a dying red oak tree as a material source. The specimen was about 130 years old.
Odami dubbed the furniture collection 'Case Study 01: On Mass.' The silhouettes of the pieces present with a minimalist elegance, emulating the grain and qualities of the dying red oak tree. As the name might suggest, 'Case Study 01: On Mass' explores the concept and expression of mass. The Canadian studio produced an armchair, a lamp, and a table as part of it.
In order to handle the wood with the utmost precision and craftsmanship, Odami partnered with Patrick Murphy—who owns the woodworking company One Wood.
