Seiffener Volkskunst Tradition und Form TWIST Trees
Introducing the TWIST Trees created by Seiffener Volkskunst in collaboration with German design duo Westosteron.
A unique and modern take on the folk art of wooden trees. These pieces won a significant distinction at the "Tradition & Form" 2020 design competition.
The turning tree TWIST combines technology and tradition, classic motifs and the material wood. The branches of the tree twists so you can create the look you desire. The bottom of the tree contains a magnet that holds the tree to the included metal base (or perhaps to the Oak Men Tray also available in our shop).
Although the folk art of carving and turning "toys" from wood is a centuries old tradition in the Erzgebirge region of northeast Germany, the art form continues to evolve and young artist-entrepreneurs are designing and creating modern departures from convention.
