Furniture rarely bares any resemblance to the raw material it came from. The Second Skin chair seeks to change that. Design studio Lotte Van Laatum first gathered second hand furniture for the oak required to construct the chair, and then modeled the chair as though it were still a tree.

The Second Skin chair has notches and nooks, just like the tree it once came from. The construction is eco-friendly, and the design is an unusual statement on the materials around us.
