• Water off a 150-year old tree trunk

    If you have been reading my entries, you will know by know how much I enjoy seeing new furniture designs and accessories. The ‘quercus’ water barrel is an addition to my top favourites. It is adorable and gives the home, kitchen more precisely such a rustic feel, so earthy. It is a water barrel made of polyester and fiberglass cast of a 150 year-old oak tree and also acrylic paint. This weyers & borms project was on show recently in the ‘je suis dada’ show at the design flanders gallery in brussels. This tree was ready to be strewn away but the designers thought that it can be put into a different use and so used a silicone mold of the tree almost identical to the original.


    To this design they combines water-tightness and the life expectancy of a water barrel. It’s smart.
