The man who grows trees into chairs

My Son sent me this link. It is always amazing to see people that can think outside of the box. This experiment of literally “growing furniture” as a business concept is way out of the box!

“A designer in Derbyshire says he has come up with a new and dramatically more efficient way of making furniture.
Gavin Munro grows young trees directly into the shape of chairs, lamps and mirror frames.
Mr Munro’s project has been going for the past nine years and this year the first lot of trees will be harvested to be sold as the finished products.”
