About the work
The first chair author made and its name says it all - Svarun - the supreme Slavic deity responsible for the creation of all the world - this chair was the foundation upon which the rest of the furniture ideas were developed. It is – the source and the inspiration resulting in a new elegance, compactness, firmness and shapes. Just as the Slavic myth tells the following story - the father of all the gods, the heaven and earth dwelled in a golden cosmic egg which, under the influence of life forces, cracked and created light, ethereal primeval creator of heaven under which everything is born and takes place, the primeval god of light of the universe, Svarog - so did the artist’s genius matured while his artistic energy literally exploded once he began making this chair. The backrest is stylistically shaped to form the letter A - signifying the beginning of everything. The seat forms an extended circle and the ring texture matches its pattern from the darker centre to the purely light outer layers. It resounds with simplicity, wholeness and self-sufficiency so it lacks the armrests which in this case would be superfluous. A unique piece, just as Svarun is the one and only.

About the artist
iving in small peaceful village and being surrounded by beautiful forests of Croatia simply gives inspiration to create art just as extraordinary. For this artist, that is unique brand of chainsaw carved furniture, each piece has been made from single tree trunk and is absolutely unique. His bond with nature can be seen in each of his works as nature and freedom is something he cherish the most in life and obviously his main inspiration and motive while carving. When he grabs chainsaw his mind is completely free without any bonds and chains on what his next move should be and how piece would have to look like. Figure of each artwork is solely inspired by the forms of each log and it’s natural abstraction. Material he uses for his carvings is carefully picked, he personally choose trees that are dead or about to dry out due to natural infulences such as various diseases, lighting strikes or insects, but still in good enough condition to be used and to look great. Perserving nature is, after all, most respected principle in this artistic business
