J.B. Blunk at Greens, San Francisco

Sculptor J.B. Blunk's amazing redwood masterwork in the cafe area of Greens restaurant in San Francisco, 1979. Although it could be 2011, since thankfully it looks exactly the same today as it did when it was built and opened by the San Francisco Zen Center in the late 70's. Where else can pull up an Aalto stool and have a coffee on a J.B. Blunk? Nowhere!

I was there last year, and it seriously looks exactly like those photos. Although, I can imagine rearranging those pieces wouldn't be easy.
