The Christmas season does bring the joy to all, regardless of any division. And, in the city of Budapest, it’s a Christmas tree that is adding much more than what you though to the holiday spirit.
Hungarian design firm Hello Wood has, for the second time, come up with a massive Christmas tree that is to light up the homes of the needy once it is brought down. Built with 5000 piece of firewood, this massive Christmas tree will be brought down after twelve days starting from Christmas day, following which the firewood will be distributed to the families in need.
For the charity works of Hungarian Interchurch Aid, Hello Wood has collaborated with Design Terminal to construct the 11 meter tall Christmas tree in a span of five days.
Designed entirely with timber and filled with firewood, this massive Christmas tree also offers a chapel-like sacred inner room with seats for people to have a check-in, with wooden log benches for seating welcoming your entrance.
If it’s Christmas decoratives that adds charm to the fir tree, it’s the spatial white paintings along the face of the log that brightens it up.
Around 33,000 pounds of stacked wooden logs have been used by the creators for this Christmas tree, with even the metal Christmas star on top being put on a wooden vertical base.
The tree at night is lit up by Philips Hungary with lighting effects thrown over the Christmas tree from the ground. The designers have dedicated their work to the people of Budapest until Epiphany and can be visited by the people during day and night.
