Designer Yoav Avinoam developed a handcrafted method for casting furniture from repurposed sawdust. His tables and stools beautifully juxtapose various textures, while crafted with a mix mixture of resin and sawdust from a variety of woods.

He lays the legs of each table directly into the mold, integrating these elements into the setting sawdust This creates a crumbly texture for the tabletop while adding support. The form of the tree branch-inspired legs also help secure the parts into the mold while it drys. You can check out the process here, at Inhabitat, where there's a gallery of how Avinoam works.
