Rubber Tree

Make a Forest is a creative response to the need to preserve trees and change the way we think about dealing with our environment, locally and globally, in a sustainable and conscious way. The rubber tree is made of old and discarded car tires.

Dimensions of the rubber tree:  W: 2 meters, H: 3,20 meter, B: 78 centimeter

During the Dutch Design Week at Eindhoven, the rubbertree was exposed as a part of the 'Make a Forest' project.

Dudley,

To answer your question…
The tree was build for the Make a Forest project and took about 4 to 5 days of work.

It consitst of 87 tires and the trunk has a metal frame inside for construction and balance. The tires together weight about 350 kg.
