Benwu Studio ‘Living Materials’ Collection

Benwu Studio’s ‘Living Materials’ collection seeks to explore and uncover new design methods for nature’s most basic material. Exploring wood’s potential in beauty and application, the collection is comprised of materials samples, finishes, and everyday household items such as a salt and pepper shaker, a pasta jar, and more. I have been really into fresh coloring on wood for a while, this collection makes it look really good and I hope to see many designers take the collection’s cue.
