"To exhibit solid wood elements in the frames of modern materials".

The Free Tree Studio a family run workshop based in central Poland. We make original furniture and decorations of pieces of wood with addition of glass and steel. The vision that have accompanied the process of designing and making our furniture is to move natural artwork into the frames of modern, durable materials. Our designs are a synthesis of natural art and modern man-made materials. Yet the soul of each piece of furniture we make is always the piece of solid wood. Steel and glass create a modern, stable frame for the wooden elements. The results of this synergy are original, functional and durable forms.

Our vision: to move natural artwork into the frames of modern materials

The basic premise of each project we undertake is using wood elements while maintaining the natural form of the wood and underlining its beauty. Steel and glass only create a stable support for the natural beauty of our forests.
Nature itself creates true works of art. The shapes and patterns of wood are indeed outstanding. All we want to do is dress wood in a modern frame and take care of its functionality. Our job is to move these natural pieces of art into residential and commercial space, processing them as little as possible in order to maintain their natural quality.
We try to bring nature into interiors / premises in its most natural and raw form. Wood in its naturalness and austerity reminds us of our roots which are continuously connected to the natural environment of forests, fields and lakes. The irregular shapes of wood and the unique varieties of patterns are also an excellent opportunity to take a moment to relax and contemplate the artwork of nature…


Design and materials

Our designs are a synthesis of natural art and modern man-made materials. The soul of each piece of furniture we make is always a piece of solid wood. Its austerity and irregular shape contrasts with the straight forms of metal, glass or plexiglass. These give our furniture simple, modern geometry and a stable form. The shapes of our pieces are simple and practical - we avoid adding unnecessary ornaments or non-functional elements. The frame, unless it is an essential part of the design, is frugal or hardly visible. All the materials complement each other to make a new, fuller quality. The results of this synergy are original and sophisticated yet functional and durable. Wood and the industrial components of metal and glass make every furnishing a unique fusion of forest and urban environments. Such a combination of raw yet warm nature and modernity perfectly fits into the interior design of apartments and commercial premises.


Wood sourcing and manufacturing – our environmentally friendly approach

We source wood mostly from the state governed forests. Those trees are cut down according to sustainable felling planned years ahead, so none of the trees we buy are cut down for the purpose of making our furniture. We also collect part of trees which remain unused after felling. Branches, crowns, roots and crooked trunks are not valuable for industrial processing but their forms and shapes make excellent material for our projects. We use different species of trees to show a variety of colors and ring shapes. All our furniture is finished with organic oils or waxes to maintain the environmentally friendly quality and natural freshness of the wood.

We stick to our environmentally friendly approach throughout the entire manufacturing process. Caring for the environment and your comfort, we impregnate our furniture and protect each piece against dust and dirt using organic oils and waxes only. We work with British Fiddes, German Livos and Finnish Tikkurila oils which are based on natural components: linseed oil, wax, resin and wood oils. The composition of these is either 100 % organic or contains trace amounts of solvents. These oils don’t cover the wood with a chemical skin. Organic oils and waxes enhance the beauty of the wood and protect it very well. And, what is most important: organically impregnated wood does not lose any of its freshness or naturalness!


Woodworking – a long process

Woodworking is a very time-consuming process as most of the work is done by hand using simple tools. Starting from claiming the pieces of wood from the forest to the final finishing, each piece passes through our hands several times. Each, even the smallest, piece is treated individually with due care and attention to fully bring out its natural beauty and to not interfere with its raw and natural character.

The whole process of making the furniture, from inspiration to completion, takes plenty of time. After claiming the wood we air dry it for 1 to 12 months. Then, if needed, we kiln dry it. Afterwards, the wood is sawed, cleaned, smoothed, leveled or fixed into frames, then precisely cut, triple sanded, oiled and polished. Although this process is a lot of fun, a lot of hard work is also done. But the effects are truly rewarding…

Additional policies and FAQs
WOOD CRACKING AND COLOR CHANGE

Wood is a hygroscopic matter which means it tends to maintain the same amount of moisture as the surrounding air. Each tree accumulates a large amount of juices, whose main ingredient is water. The pieces of wood we use are dried before built to furniture. During the air and kiln drying most of the wood vapour. The tempo of drying depend on the mass of the piece, in general a more massive piece needs more time to vapour the moisture. At this time the log or other piece of wood shrinks which almost always results in cracking on the sides or ends of a pieces. The pieces of wood may still crack even when assembled into frame. Each piece will continue to loose moisture when it arrives to its final destination as it needs to acclimatize itself to the lower humidity of its new environment. The existing cracks can deepen and new ones may appear. This is a natural result of a further shrinking. Such is the beauty of the natural wood , which works all the time astonishing us with new cracks that spontaneously arise in the block. They highlight the natural character of the wood and can’t be deemed as ‘’defects” of the furniture. Cracking doesn’t affect the piece's functionality or structural strength and will not result in a refund or compensation.

CARE OF YOUR PIECE

To keep your organic, solid wood furniture in an excellent condition you need to remember of proper cleaning and care. The key rules are:
• avoid placing hot cups or vessels directly neither or on the wooden elements nor tampered glass table tops.
• keep your furniture away from the radiator
• to remove the dust use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment
• wipe away surface marks using a clean, damp cloth.
• avoid strong, aggressive – acid containing commercial cleaners and polishes. We can supply you we proper detergents at your purchase.
• make sure a proper air circulation between the wood and the floor is always maintained. Don’t remove leg levellers / casters attached to a piece as the piece may releases humidity which can stain the carpets if it’s placed on directly .
