Marcel Dunger and Florian Meier, co-founders of Manufract, say it’s no accident that bio-resin is the choice to finish these recycled pieces. “Inspired by the self-healing process of trees and we created a new and unique design. If a tree gets injured, it will naturally release resin to close the wound. This natural concept of wound-healing is used for the manufacturing process of these products. Broken pieces of wood are form-filled with a novel eco-resin to get the final shape. Each product is unique and crafted out of broken hardwood,” they explain.

In a twist on conventional design, the broken sections of salvaged materials are highlighted, rather than covered up. The stunning blue hue of the resin almost resembles a peaceful pond or puddle within the wooden outline, creating a deeper connection to the natural origins of the materials. Manufract designs side tables, shelving, and even jewelry using their eco-resin. And each piece is just as unique as the individual trees from which the materials came.
