Intriguing Wooden Sculpture Inspired by an Exploding Log: Billon

We ran across this intriguing wooden sculpture envisioned by Lausanne-based Vincent Kohler, which I believe would integrate nicely in an office building voided by personality, or even in an extremely large home. Entitled “Billon”, the project measures 110 x 100 x 300 cm (43″ x 39″ x 118″) and is said to be inspired by the idea of an exploding log. The pieces were cut, respecting the laws of symmetry, which makes the whole look appealing. An interesting geometry is created, and each point of view reveals new shapes. The tree crust seems to hover on the surface, making one curious about the way all those elements stay together. The projects was completed  by using a support constructed by polystyrene and resin. For art lovers, the interpretations of this modern sculpture are probably numerous. How would you define it? Do you consider this to be an inspired idea for modern interiors?
