Intended to be a functional showcase of the possibilities for design in a world in an abundance of waste. Constructed using a reformed glass bottle as the shade, this reduces the energy needed in full glass recycling whilst maintaining visual ties to the materials previous life cycle. The woodwork is completed by the same tree surgeons that planked the naturally fallen tree, leading investment into sustainable forestry management. Handled with full respect, bent into from using only steam and finished with nut based oils, the wood remains totally natural resulting in a component that will degrade in to nature’s recycling system after a long life of use. The electronic components have been selected for their quality and recyclability. With no components permanently joined Quercus can be easily disassembled for recycling or if needed repair.
