Kaspar Hamacher, burned wooden stool
Published on June 17, 2013
Kaspar Hamacher loves wood and his chain saw. Belgium designer Kaspar Hamacher creates furniture that range from chairs to shelves. Using nature as a source of inspiration he aims to design simple pieces that are not artificially produced.
Taking nature as his basis, Kaspar Hamacher (1981), is focused resolutely on physical rather than conceptual design. As he says himself, he feels more craftsman than designer. The things he can do with wood appeal to the imagination: whether it is a tree stump or a piece of leather, the key is authenticity in every step of his design process. Hamacher’s working method always results in a unique, personal piece. A piece of design with a deeper meaning; with a soul. His work is somewhere inbetween art and design.
