Amber is a brand, a furniture line, a 100 page book and a series of video pieces developed in collaboration with industrial designer Still Design. This project was exhibited at IDS West 2012.
Amber is an exploration of wood and tree, of people and furniture. They are all fundamentally connected; they share one story. The furniture line is handmade from a single tree from Vancouver’s Stanley Park, a 205 year-old Coastal Douglas Fir. The book and digital pieces are inspired by its life and tell its life story. The project is a result of a design philosophy rooted in a deep understanding, empathy and respect for trees as living beings.
