As a symbol of our Wood Style editorial in the upcoming OKOLO Magazine we chose wood splinter. The basic material to make a fire in nature, as well as at home, became pure and beautiful natural object, which can be used for design, too.

So we asked young dutch design duo Daphna Isaacs and Laurens Manders to design anything from these OKOLO splinters. We sent package with 15 splinters to Eindhoven, Netherlands and waited for the reply. Daphna and Isaacs were thinking about many products ideas. Their work process you can see here on simple drawings, which show how dutch designers thought about our commission. Lamp, torch, ladder or toy? Nothing from these. At the end package was returning with very nice crafted swing. About it later...
