This extraordinary root is part of a capsule collection in collaboration with Montauk Drift Co. It was brought back by the founder from Guanacaste, Costa Rica.
During the heavy rain periods, the Rio Tulip pulls the trees root systems from the banks and flushes them down the river into the ocean. The surf will then push them onto the beach. They sit there for some time and weather, after which Montauk Drift Co works their magic on transporting, shaping and hand sculpting the root.
As opposed to machine cut root consoles, this piece is imperfectly perfect in form, allowing for the nature of the grain and the organic shaping of the wood to be the true highlight of this unique piece.
