Paul Evermann: bender stool

I think the cable ties used to support the chair at first come across as unstable and an irregular way of joining. But Overman has combined natural found wood with a very simple temporary modern design that is the cable tie, with this to me he's showing how such a seemingly temporary modern product can be of as much importance and hold comparative strength with a traditional component, like a piece of branch.
