Two little birds playhouse

22 Nov

A scale model and  full-size mock-up of a playhouse I’m making for Stockholm Furniture Fair in February 2014. It’s made from birch plywood and water hyacinth rope, and is a part of a project of making furniture from rope of unwanted materials – waste or weeds. Water hyacinth is an aquatic weed causing various environmental problems throughout the world; an organization called Zingira in Kenya is making efforts in turning it into useful material.

Petrebišća 2012.

2 Aug

I spent several days with people from Dragodid at abandoned seasonal village Petrebišća on Učka mountain. For three years they have been organizing dry stone workshops at Petrebišća with volunteering architecture, landscape architecture and ethnology students who are along with local builders and Dragodid members slowly rebuilding the whole village. This year the goal was rebuilding the thatched roof on a stone shelter.

Third life of wood

29 Jun

Here’s a preview of pieces I’m making for the July exhibition in Zagreb. Pieces are done in reclaimed oak wood and beautiful photographs are done by the photographer Siniša Gulić. It’s an interesting story, as well. When doing research for the exhibition, we discovered a whole black market of reclaimed oak wood – people who are demolishing traditional wooden houses of continental Croatia and selling the wood to furniture producers in Europe, thus destroying rural landscape and an important part of Croatian cultural heritage. So along the way, my friend Nikica Klobučar made a radio documentary about this, which will also be a part of the exhibition. ImageImageImageImageImageImage

Tree Branch Bench

15 Apr

It’s situated in Protected landscape area of Lopar at the island of Rab. It is part of the project of establishing some basic infrastructure in the area – steps for steep slopes, banks to prevent erosion in sensitive sandy landscape, and resting places with benches and trellises. A true delight to make, working in magnificent, windswept area.

Exposed to the wind… but a shelter for the soul.
