Areaware & Johannes Molin's
Twist and swirl this decorative beech wood tree or keep it super-flat—all ways, we’re sure, Mother Nature never intended. But it's in nature that Swedish-born designer and mathematician Johannes Molin found inspiration, specifically the Golden Ratio, the universal proportional system that plays a role in the human perception of beauty.
Johannes spent his youth in a forested countryside and fell in love with wood; later he went on to become a teacher, furniture maker and interior designer. He built his own home and found great joy in constructing a twisted staircase from the climbing ash tree of his youth. The Infinite Tree is made by New York-based Areaware, and is a strikingly graphic alternative to the Christmas spruce tree during the holidays.
