Ancient Puzzle Meets Modern Table
Inspired by Japanese puzzle games, this simple table solution, appropriately named JOIN, can be assembled in a matter of minutes (without any tools!) by linking its 3 oak legs into a combination devil’s knot. The untreated base supports a circular smoked glass top measuring 750mm in diameter and can be quickly disassembled for storage or shipment. A DIY flat-pack design that’s as easy as it is fun to put together.
Smiling Stool Gives Hope
The Smile Stool is the result of a study on the declining Indonesian furniture industry, that in recent years has had incredible difficulty competing its handmade craftsmanship against China’s mass manufactured products. In addition to the price competition, the more than 3500 Indonesian companies often end up with huge amounts of excess material that often ends up as firewood. Using the waste in the construction & streamlining a simple assembly process, this sustainable design gives hope to the industry & provides a solution for the survival of the local craftsman.
