Austrian artist and furniture maker Christian Bittner has become a household name amongst design experts due to his outstanding creations made of reclaimed wooden wine barrels. In his BC2013 Gallery in Traun, just south of the town of Linz, Bittner exhibits unique objets d’art made of decade old oak and fruit tree wood. Coffee tables, chest of
drawers or seating furniture items feature names such as Chardonney LA 6 or Pinot Noir T 80, hinting at their origin. Reclaimed wood is the most sustainable raw material with the advantage of great character. No surface is like another and years of usage have added a striking patina to the durable material.
