This book is based on an Adirondack furniture book donated to Philippe Weisbecker 20 years ago by a New York friend who worked in a hardware store.
"I've always loved rustic furniture, made from stumps, branches or pieces of wood. Initially I wanted to faithfully reproduce the furniture in the book. Very quickly, I realized that I was especially interested in the skeleton of these pieces of furniture, their structures and the vectors of force that govern them. Little by little, I even came to free myself from these parameters to arrive at simpler structural compositions, halfway between figuration and abstraction." Philippe Weisbecker
