Looks like and interesting project at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac in Paris. Here is the press release for "Living Wood".
"The furniture is made of one piece of wood that seems to have been split into various units for practical purposes. It is raised above the ground, facing upwards, to serve as a base for the flat orange leather surfaces which protrude from it at various heights. A revolving stool is in the middle of a low table, accompanied by a much higher section and a treasure box"
