At the time that I was designing this Chair I had no knowledge of anyone else who was trying to shape living trees anywhere in the world. Knowing that if I had the idea, many others would have the same thought go through their mind. Some may have been able to act upon the idea, according to their life experiences and circumstances.
This design was one of my favorites at that time. We now have a completely different perception for living tree chairs, which incorporates stone or glass into the design of tree chair. It's been 7 years since this tree was planted and our designs have been changing and evolving though-out that time.
