Seeing random greenery sprouting from your furniture is usually a sign it’s time to hire a professional housecleaner – unless, of course, its art. Lebanese-Brazilian artist Camille Kachani just unveiled a unique collection of household objects that appear to have sprouted wooden limbs and green leaves.
The thought-provoking collection showcases a number of everyday furnishings reworked with plant systems that “sprout” from the objects. Chairs, shelves, shovels, rakes, books, and even ovens have been transformed with weaving roots, branches, and green leaves, resulting in a nature-inspired sculpture that brings the objects back to their original “roots.”
According to the artist, he reworks the objects in order to reference their natural state and show the limitless “possibilities related to the process of transformation of nature.” By rendering the furnishings or tools unusable, the hybrid objects appear to be slowly returning to their natural form.
