Do you think furniture grows on trees?

Austrian designers mischer'traxler have made a solar-powered machine that spins spools of thread into an incredible selection of furnishings. Depending on weather, light, time of year, and other environmental factors, their color, size and shape varies.

The spinning motion of the spool is dictated by the amount of sunlight, so during cloudy winter days the wrapping motior is slower and the resulting pieces denser, smaller and heavier. Each piece is made during one day, and harvested at night.

Spotted on Inhabitat.
