Munich-based firm Kare Design has recently launched a range of furniture inspired by love for the tree

The natural wood collection, Nature Line,  has been constructed out of acacia wood from managed forests with legs of nickel-plated steel. Chosen for its exceptional strength and durability, the wood ranges in colour between warm ochre and reddish brown, allowing for interesting compositions and making each piece truly unique. The beauty of the grain has been highlighted by carpenters through cutting along the line of tree trunk, resulting in furniture that can work as a type of natural artwork.

Edges of benches and tables mimic the natural shape of a tree trunk and clean lines and organic forms can be seen consistently throughout the range. Once each piece of wood has been cut to length by machinery, the rest of the process is completed by hand. For this reason a small item from the collection can take up to a week to complete, while work on a dining table or chest of drawers may take ten workers double that.
