Driftwood is a specific type of debris that has withstood forces of nature, such as snowstorms, tidal waves, and heavy winds, to end up along the shores of beaches around the world. After coming upon these worn down scraps of lumber, German brand Hejmonti had the idea to transform them into a project called Drift.
The initiative has led to a series of raw, multifunctional products. Once they are retrieved from the sand, the geographic coordinates of each discovery site are burnt into the surface with a branding iron, adding a typographic element to the work. They are then equipped with magnets which allows keys, knives, tools and other metallic items will stick to the wood as it is mounted on a wall. The natural process allows each board to have its own identity, with irregular edges and washed out grains accompanied by remnants of nails, knots, and snails.
