You never know where you’ll be when inspiration hits. For artist and designer Sebastian Errazuriz, this happened when he was walking down a street in Santiago, Chile, and came across this branch.

Not wanting to miss an opportunity to create something great, he dragged it back to his workshop.

Bilbao receives its name from the street in Santiago where the artist found a branch that had broken off a fallen tree.

At his workshop, he set about transforming the branch into an artistic shelf, he has named ‘Bilbao’, after the street he found it on.

The branch was re-adapted so it could hug a flat wall, and was given glass platforms, so that it could live a new life as a shelf.
