The President

The 3200 year old tree so massive that it had never been captured in a single image until recently.

This giant sequoia stands 247 feet tall and measures 45,000 cubic feet in volume. The trunk alone measures 27 feet and the branches hold 2 billion needles (more than any tree on the planet).

This picture took a team of photographers from Nat Geo, 32 days and stitching together 126 different photos to make.

i love redwoods because they are at the very limit of what the dynamics of capillary action allows to exist i’m glad an evolutionary niche exists for “THE BIGGEST FUCKIN TREE THAT CAN BE”

Lake Cabin, Czech Republic by FAM Architekti | via

Erected within the same boundaries as the former 1970s cabin, which was lacking suitable insulation and infrastructure, the simple wooden structure offers an improved connection with the forested site. Wood was chosen as the most suitable building material because of the cabin’s environs and because the construction methods caused minimal disruption to the site.

"The lake is a holiday destination with timber construction already present in cottages and cabins," explained Nasadil. "We aimed at a lightweight building which would not embed itself in nature with concrete foundations, but was more sensitive."

The cabin is raised above the forest floor on steel screws that allow the sandy terrain to continue underneath. The use of prefabricated construction techniques also helped to reduce the build time for the project, which was limited by the harsh winter weather.

Components for the timber framework were laser cut and transported to the site, where they were assembled in just one and a half weeks. The client oversaw the rest of the building process over a period of ten months. Vertical larch battens cladding the cabin’s exterior reference the trunks of the surrounding pine trees and continue across the folding shutters, creating a sealed facade that protects the cabin when closed.

When fully opened, the shutters reveal a glazed wall that provides an expansive view of the lake. The glass surface is split into sections that slide open to connect the interior with a small decked space outside.

Half Pipe Desk

The concept for the Half Pipe Desk was inspired by designer Eric Pfeiffer’s skateboard ramp of his youth…The overall design is minimal, with a hint of bright yellow, making it a subtle addition to your home office.

Our recycled Messmate and Walnut side table with Turkish Travertine top.

Travertine is a true testament to the beauty of nature. Quite fragile in appearance, it has been compacted for millennia into a durable material.

Good enough for the Roman Collisseum, good enough for supporting our coffees and niche periodicals.
