"The cut pieces of wood lost their lives and could, as
being their last exhalation, bring us warmth if we decided
to burn them…
Instead we figured out a way in which the splinters can
carry out their energy and verve for a longer period.

A swing expresses liveliness and evokes an instant
feeling of freedom, this is what we aspire the splinters
to communicate.

Simply hang it and the object itself does the job.
People passing by will hopefully be pleasantly surprised
and feel the urge to swing on it!"

Daphna Isaacs and Laurense Manders

Last year we have commissioned Dutch design duo Daphna Isaacs and Laurens Manders from Eindhoven to design any simple object from our OKOLO splinters.

Project which was created in the context of our Wood Style editorial in OKOLO Next Step magazine started with the sending of 15 splinters to Eindhoven and continued with the receiving of the completed swing which was the great result of dutch designers`s invention.

Daphna Isaacs and Laurens Manders presented our taste very much and with their swing called Back to the Woods created from splinters and rope only, completed our vision of Wood Style with the best.

Here you can check photo editorial we have made with the Back to the Woods swing in our homeland of north Bohemian. We took it into the deepest forests with the best outdoor equipment and had a big fan.

Enjoy too!
