A desire to bring nature inside modern homes stands at the center of the LOG furniture series designed by Torafu Architects. Inspired by traditional techniques used by lumberjacks for centuries to cut the wood in the forest and by the “lumberjack’s candle” design, the Japanese studio created a range of products that bridge the gap between raw and organic on one side and contemporary and functional on the other.

The logs are cut without creating waste by using the traditional Kobiki saw and the “stop sawing” technique. The vertical cuts are allowed to dry naturally, which makes the wood wrap and curve in beautiful shapes as it dries. Featuring the marks of time and the raw beauty of the solid wood, the pieces from this series combine subtle human intervention and nature in striking designs. The logs are made from camphorwood and hackberry and can be used as seating, coffee tables or lighting, to suit various requirements. There are three versions available, all designed with a warm and rustic sculptural appearance that will transform them into the focal point of any room. Photography by Owashi Yosuke.
