Wall of Wood

When plain ol' wallpaper just doesn't cut it anymore, and you need to declare your love for wasting natural resources, here's a wall of wood by a Danish company Connecta: Link


Why is it a waste of natural resources? It could be recycled wood for all we know.

I don't see how it's any worse than wallpaper. That still comes from trees... but it's used a lot of resources to get from the "tree" stage to the "paste-backed paper" stage.

Knee-jerk eco-reaction to anyone using natural products to create art. Should all art come from man-made prducts? Is there a place in your world for man glorify the wonder of god created beauty? Perhaps it is the hand-of-man that raises your bile? Were we not also created by God? Is not art that uses his other creations our greatest glorification of his will?

It looks like cord wood. I stacked more than that a couple of weeks ago. I don't think it's really that attractive (that's why my woodpile is out behind the garage) and woodpiles are also spider central.

I have to chime in with L; why is this any kind of waste of natural resources? If it was a stack of firewood-size sticks, maybe I'd agree, but I'd bet the pieces are all less than a half-inch thick. I kinda like the look.

My basement family room is covered with 1" knotty pine carsiding that was installed in the '50's; I don't think anyone has ever considered something like that to be wasteful. If you do, you probably haven't thought much about what's involved in construction.

forest are ecologically managed now. You just have to choose where your wood comes from. No waste there Alex, just renewable materials.
Example :

and

On cordwood masonry : although the thickness of the wall brings some insulation, some examples show a lot of mortar, which are going to be a big thermal bridge. Interesting design wise but not eco friendly I think.
