Making furniture from wood waste and off-cuts...

 Date:20/11/2008 - 30/11/2008
 Location:England, Liverpool

Norwegian-British designer and illustrator Amy Hunting will be exhibiting her new furniture collection made solely out of wood waste and off-cuts at NICE08 in Liverpool 20-30 November.

She makes furniture that looks like her drawings and drawings that look like her furniture. After gaining a BA in furniture design from Denmark's Design School, she has recently moved to London where she is now working as an intern at Established & Sons.

Amy Hunting’s new collection is the 'Patchwork series', where wood waste and off-cuts were collected from factories in Denmark. The collection is made entirely out of the factory waste collected. The pieces were put together to form a wood patchwork before they were made into; a chair, a book box and a series of 12 lamps.

NICE08 is the first Nordic Art and Culture Festival to take place in the North West, and is setting the scene for long term collaborations, exchanges, cultural and economic development between this region and the Nordic countries.

These lamps were cut out of a large solid block of wood, made up of small off-cuts. The pendant lamps were then cut out of the block until 12 lamps revealed themselves and all the wood had been cut out. They can be hung on any bare lamp bulb through the top of the lamp. The 12 lamps can be stacked inside each other for easy transport or stacked on top of each other.

The chair is built out of wood waste and off-cuts and nothing else.
