Wood Punk? Lumberbots? What does one call these finely crafted, amazingly designed wooden robots created by toy maker Takeji (Take-G) Nakagawa, whose motto is “to bring wooden beauty and quality into life in my own style”? Stylish they are. One almost wouldn’t mind these robots destroying one's city, they look so good. “Trees take [a] long time to grow and show us their beauty. I think that I have responsibilities as a craftsman and an artist of breathing new life into these trees. I have a job to link 100 years in the past and 100 years in the future through my work.” Not yet to the shores of the U.S.A., it’s only a matter of time before these stunning robo-timbers invade our land.
