David Long and Antoine Morris from The Practice of Everyday Design just sent me one of their new projects. The log Chop Bench is a pretty cool concept. I really like the juxtaposition of the organic shaped wood log and the exactness used to fabricate the faceted Outdoor/Marine grade vinyl seating. This one of a kind modern bench will be auctioned off. Make the jump to see more images, concept drawings and auction info.

The Log Chop Bench represents an exploration in process-based design. They decided to approach the concept of this one-off piece by setting up a series of parameters that would define the final product without them relying on drawings or a concrete final image. The project was a fluid evolution from an abstract idea into a physical sculpture that represents a dialogue between the designers and their collaborators.

The Practice of Everyday Design hired a professional Lumberjill. Given little instruction and a few hours, the Lumberjill interpreted their concept and made it real, going wild on the log with her axe at competition speed, shaving off the bark and hacking out the three spots where the seats would be inserted.

The user’s experience of the roughly chopped log seats is mediated by the fine, hand-sewn upholstery by a motorcycle saddle maker.
