wonderwall studios + wastED


While the wastED London team was busy scavenging the fields for ingredients, Jan Swinkels of Wonderwall Studios was hard at work repurposing scraps from the forest.

The display cases you’ll find on the Selfridges rooftop are not like those in any museum; we partnered with Wonderwall Studios to design these custom vitrines to showcase the rugged shapes and unpredictable lines of salvaged root wood from naturally fallen trees. (The same wood went to work in shaping our shelving and bar tops.)

Though usually seen as unpredictable and too difficult to work with, root wood gets a second (and better) life at Wonderwall Studios, where its distinctive grain textures and hues create one-of-a-kind wood furnishings.
