Woodworker Kino Guerin has achieved equilibrium through creating furniture out of one unique piece of wood.

Canadian woodworker Kino Guerin gave himself the challenge of constructing furniture with one unique piece of wood- no crossbars, supports, or legs- to obtain equilibrium, and sense of flow out of what once was a rigid material.

As described by the designer:

To simplify, let’s take a wooden panel; it makes an excellent top for a table but for the legs, one must bend the extremities until they reach the floor. This is the base, but it must also look very nice, original and be punchy. To get this overall effect, the panel must be bent further in order to obtain an airy movement, as if this had been done naturally. It must reflect equilibrium between the curve and the straight line, between exuberance and purity. The whole essence of this aesthetic approach can thus be captured at a glance and let one speechless at the sight of this splendid beauty, requiring no props or devices. It is my definition of perfection. I gave myself heart and soul in this approach, that I have made mine, and it is now my guidance. With it, I doubt no more.
