It is in these somewhat unlikely places that Hlavinka, a Texas native who was a Lego-obsessed kid, discovers the building blocks for the tables, chairs and other pieces of furniture that he methodically handcrafts. Hlavinka had just such an epiphany, for instance, when he was visiting an uncle southwest of Houston and saw some old cedar barn rafters just lying around.
Hlavinka’s journey to making the kind of artistic furniture that is worthy to be named was roundabout, albeit completely understandable in hindsight.
At least in part, the decision to spend half a year building furniture was inspired by Hlavinka’s actual experience working as an architect. Still, one lesson from architecture school has remained a driving force in Hlavinka’s choice to make furniture from materials that already have had one life. Which is not to say that Hlavinka regards his furniture either as works of art or environmental activism.
