Made using wood from salvaged Senegal Mahogany (Khaya senegalensis) trees, we reduce the need for fresh lumber while giving a new purpose to salvaged wood. Respecting the natural geometry of this piece of wood and retaining its beautiful “eye”, we carve out a void that flows into its cross section, as though to invite visitors to sit, stay and complete the frame.
