Sebastian Errazuriz's Shelving Unit Designs are Built from Fallen Trees

Sebastian Errazuriz is both a designer and creative that has found a way to upcycle fallen trees collected throughout regions in South America to create unique shelving unit designs. The shelves transform the stretched out branches of the tree into the base of the ledge coupled with a glass plank so that books and items can be artfully placed on top. The unconventional use of the natural tree's shape renders each shelf unique and one-of-a-kind.

The shelves are beautiful and natural in aesthetic, keeping the raw shape of the tree's natural growth as a focal point in the design. The shelf can be mounted against the wall with the glass racks fixed onto the branches to create a sturdier platform to hold books, objects and knick-knacks. The unit becomes a functional furniture piece as well as a work of art displayed on the wall.
