Where There’s Smoke…

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

"Pieces of furniture are literally burned, after which they are preserved in a clear epoxy coating. Except for three baroque
products, which are reproduced by the Dutch label Moooi, all Smoke products come from the Baas & den Herder studio
in The Netherlands. Since 2004 gallery Moss and Maarten Baas collaborate on the “Where There’s Smoke…” A Smoke collection of well known design classics of a.o Rietveld, Eames and Gaudi. Besides this series, Baas has done commissions for collectors and museums around the world."

Those are gorgeous piece. I wonder if they are as structurally sound as they were before being burned.
