Thrift by Judith Seng are a series of brilliantly colored logs that can be used as stools, tables, or pretty much anything. The logs are sanded, polished & hand lacquered to a high gloss finish at the top, and a dull natural unfinished bottom.
From the designer:
Trift explores the ideal of perfect, high-gloss surfaces by creating and destroying them within the same object. Each form and surface derives from the individual size, characteristics and gradual transformations over time of the underlying tree-log.
