Piet Hein Eek Tree Trunk Kids Furniture


"It's important for children to realize that wood comes from trees," said the Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek to the New York Times in 2007.

And the Piet Hein Eekiest way to do that? Kids furniture made from tree trunks, of course.

At EUR232/chair, plus EUR1105 for the table, The awesome, Nakashima-esque wood slab furniture will also help children realize that money comes from parents. And if their hedge fund parents have lost everything in an Antiguan financial scam this winter, they'll help children to realize that frostbite-thwarting roadside campfires come from Dutch treetrunk playtables.
