Lars Beller Fjetland: Re-turned

returnedbirds1 returnedbirds2 returnedbirds3 returnedbirds4

Norwegian designer Lars Beller Fjetland creates these Re-turned birds and owls out of trashed or unused pieces of woods.

“I saw dumpsters on every street corner and started to wonder how much quality materials I could find on a single raid plundering these urban sawmills. A short trip gathering wood provided me with enough material to build at least 20 birds. This really opened my eyes to the fact that trash really is a misplaced resource.”

I love wood as a medium. It's so warm and grounding. These are wonderful.
