Tree Hugging Chairs

Found these Tree Hugging chairs on the www. No source.
The story

These chairs were laid out for a wedding in 1939 in Poland. The wedding was abandoned, and so were the chairs due to the German invasion. They were found again after the war with the trees growing through them. Every year they are repainted.

To me it sounds like an urban legend…

Recently I visited Keramis, a new museum in Belgium dedicated to Ceramic art. The museum is built (folded) around a very old ceramic oven and was opened in May 2015. It features the Bouroullec brothers’ Vegetal Chair in its café.
