Birch is one of our favorite trees, famous for their pale and lovely bark. Designer Anastasiya Koshcheeva has created a gorgeous and modern lounge chair and ottoman made from birchbark called ‘Sibirjak’. In it, she has proven that the material can be strong and flexible, tactile and beautiful, yet delicate all at the same time. Via DesignBoom:
Birch bark is both water-repellant and antibacterial.
Detail of ottoman. Love the bright contrasting lines of cord.
Raw birchbark used in the process.
The chair and ottoman are surprisingly durable.
Made in Siberia by hand.
