Walden

01 product description

Product description

‘Walden. Or, Life in the woods’ is the name of a story from the American writer and philosopher Henry David Thoreau, written in the mid 19th century, which describes his life and his relationship with nature. The concept of simple life influenced the garden-project fromNils Holger Moormann, which invites one to live outdoors.Determined garden-owners are able to store various tools such as shovel, rake and wheelbarrow in this ‘wooden box’ of unusual proportions. Easy goers have to decide whether to take a seat at the table in the seating cabin, or climb a ladder to the upper level. There it’s possible to enjoy the view or to stretch out and guess cloud shapes or count stars under the sliding sun roof. The obligation of a campfire is created in a swinging fire cauldron, and right beside it, the necessary space for firewood.As a whole, ‘Walden’ offers lots of room for things we associate with ‘garden’ and ‘outdoors’ and honours them with a layout, in which they can be seen: birdhouse and bird seed, flower pot and water can, grill utensils and picnic table.
