ikea art treehouse

russel tipped me on this piece that ran on european tv channel, arte.

guy ben-ner, assuming the role of robinson crusoe, starts with a ‘tree’ made out of dismantled ikea furniture. he then proceeds to take it apart and reassemble it into the furniture pieces he started with – a round table, a rocking chair, a chair a parasol and a sleeping loft.

    Hey, I’ve been desperately searching for two Ikea Knoppe footstools. Preferably with black leather covers, but I’ll take whatever I can find. Can anyone help me? I’m also looking for a couple of white Karlso parasols for our patio. If anyone has any of these items, please contact me. I’m in Vancouver, Canada. [email protected]. Thanks!
