Everything in the economy revolves around consumption. Manufacturers constantly provide new designs or models, making existing products redundant or old fashioned. This phenomenon causes tons of superfluous garbage and leads to a waste of materials and energy, as well as inflation promoting money traffic. So Studio of Eden decided to create a product made as a reaction against the large-scale waste. Their Eden collection is fully manufactured by hand, from the leftovers of nature: unprocessed tree branches found in the Dutch woods. The branches have been serrated into slices and hollowed out to form the base material. Each individual slice forms a unique puzzle piece that is eventually pieced together into a beautiful and intricate sphere. Each piece is strong enough to withstand the test of time and embodies the earthly paradise where everything is in eternal harmony.
