The roots we source are so incredible on their own that they need not simply be turned into functional furniture, but they can also stand alone as art. Mounted on bases, these one-of-a-kind natural roots are true sculptural statement pieces. The reticulated roots can be placed in a window or used as a room divider. As with our other Origins pieces, our sculptures are finished on both sides, giving you two options and no restrictions on where you place them. There is no wrong way to install these. Just remember that no one else will have the same one you do! If that matters to you…
Available Wood Species
We offer a variety of wood species and finishes for our furnishings. Please take a look at the available options below.
Maki Screens / Sculpture
The Maki Screen is a jaw-dropping dimensional sculpture that acts as a monument to nature. A large chunk of organically shaped wood is framed within an attractive, minimalistic iron frame to create a contrast that makes the piece an outstanding conversation starter. A stunning method of dividing a room, these screens represent an exciting blend of form and function. With variations in shape, size, and color, each screen is a one-of-a-kind work of art.
Teak Root Sculptures
Teak wood is a Phillips Collection favorite for many reasons: beautiful grain, hypnotizing organic growth patterns, and durable enough to stand up to a long list of hazards that would spell doom for other species of wood. The Teak Sculpture is our way of proudly proclaiming our love for this astounding material.
Mahogany Abstract Sculpture
Mahogany wood is famous for being good at nearly everything. The straight grained hardwood is a stellar combination of beauty and strength. With a resistance to warping and rot, Mahogany furniture is certain to live a long life and will darken with age until ending in a beautiful deep reddish-brown color. This is why we chose this lovely species of wood to create our stunning Mahogany Sculptures. These abstract dimensional sculptures have been hand carved into a variety of untamed shapes. Each sculpture will vary in shape, size, and color which will bestow a unique sense of character onto your piece.
Erosion is a fascinating process in which wood and stone are broken down over time and relocated by the invisible hand of Mother Nature herself. When wood begins to erode, it can develop into unbelievably captivating shapes that defy imagination. Phillips Collection’s Erosion Sculpture on Stand is a recreation of this natural phenomenon that demonstrates the unique forms wood can take when introduced to the elements. Constructed from teak wood in a bleached finish, the Erosion Sculpture is mounted to a matte black iron stand that gives this organic piece a splash of modern flair.
Teak Wood Carved Sculptures
Teak wood is a Phillips Collection favorite for many reasons: beautiful grain, hypnotizing organic growth patterns, and durable enough to stand up to hazards that other species of wood can not. The Teak Carved Sculptures are Phillips Collection’s way of proudly proclaiming our love for this astounding material. Offered in both natural and bleached finishes, these dimensional sculptures feature large chunks of natural teak root that are hand carved and affixed to a matte black iron stand.
Revolving Teak Sculpture
The Revolving Natural Teak Wood Sculpture exhibits Mother Nature’s artistry. Its circumference is surrounded by a pared down circle that sits atop an equally clean-lined base. The juxtaposition of the wood’s organic shape and the smooth black metal brings added interest to the sculpture. We have rescued the roots in this collection from being one of nature’s finest castaways by making it into an elemental design statement. We’ve added the alphabetical descriptor to the name of each piece to signal it is a one-of-a-kind work of art.
