Consumerism refers to economic policies, placing emphasis on mindless consumption rather than creation. Branchworks is a social interaction project which uses a stool to transform consumers into makers. The consumers are led through three steps, each intended to invoke curiosity and guide them to an intimate meeting with the designer. A workshop that teaches the prospecting makers two separate techniques that are simple and easy. Woodcarving and a method of connection that can be used to fix, fabricate or embellish using tree branches.

stick

stick table/ Esra Jakobsson


In our everyday life we are surrounded by products. Products that we use frequently but have stopped noticing. By playing with used christmas trees as material the Stick was born. Stick can be attached to a tabletop or a seat to serve as a leg and therefore creating the finished product. The leg is two parted, wood and steel. The composition of these materials strengthen each other as separately they wouldn’t work as legs. Stick is designed to make the user notice their ordinary everyday objects and hopefully make him smile.

This simple hat stand is adjustable – when an object is placed on a hook it drops, gripping to the stem and securing the hat or jacket at that chosen height.

branch / tool and bark

Have you ever put so many coats on a coat rack that it fell over?
Neither have we but in case that were to happen, we’ve found the perfect solution.
Inspired by the form of a tree, we developed a coat rack that will not only never fall over because of its sturdy concrete base but can also handle a heavy weight load.
