French designer Thomas de Lussac has seamlessly manipulated a raw tree stump into an outdoor table that stays connected to its roots (no pun intended).
Entitled Racine Carre Table (translated as ‘Square Root’), on one end it’s a furniture piece with sleek features, and on the other end it’s in its original form, with roots acting as a massive leg.
Lussac spent eight months developing Racine Carre, using a crane to uproot it, then cutting it in half and sanding it. The final phase involved sending the material to cabinet maker Perchebois for assembly.
The result is part furniture, part sculpture, and part nature.
