While visiting Polish designer Oskar Zieta at his home the other day, I found two stools in his livingroom that are obviously inspired by a beaver trunk. Wrocław-based Mowo Studio liked the idea of telling a story that comes up in nature in a product.
The title of this project is ‘bobra robota’ which means ‘beaver’s work’. In Polish you say ‘dobra robota’ if you talk about ‘good work’. I guess I don’t have to explain the clear similarities of dobra and bobra. The stools are handmade in birch or linden wood. But these two pictured here are painted in white and light-grey.
