Buy Local: Scott Eunson

By Tory Healy

Scott Eunson has had an irregular career trajectory: he branches out, he digs in deep. As an architect, he planned structures based on physical reality and human scale. As an unintended artist, he exhibited his technological experiments with natural materials at S.P.I.N. Gallery. Eunson, the industrial designer, turns trees inside out to express life stories in furnishings. This maple bench, for instance, began as an uneven heart slab. Its cellular structure was sized-up and CNC-routed onto the surface—producing seats. Eunson then torched, rubbed smooth and fitted it with hairpin legs, as an architect would do. $2,800, scotteunson.com
