Inspired by nature and the elements, Belgian designer Kaspar Hamacher uses fire to create furniture. ‘Ausgebrannt’, which means “burned out” in German, is a series of stools made of tree trunks that have been cut into segments of varying length.

The bark is stripped from the exterior of the trunks and fire is then used to hollow out parts of the bole to create legs. Originally based in urban Brussels, Kaspar moved back to his roots, to the forest, where he now runs his atelier.

An installation of Hamacher’s Ausgebrannt collection, as well as a series of pieces which have been conceived and produced for his first solo exhibition in Paris, “Monoxyl(e)s”, is on display at Design Pool until September 13, 2014.
