'Breakdown' desk by Louie Rigano

The US designer and graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design Louie Rigano realised this series of furniture. The construction is based on joineries which take a backseat to alternative methods that require no tools for assembly.

“The tray table implements a crossbeam that locks in place and two triangulated leg pieces. The tray top’s two angled rectangular openings get wedged onto the top of the legs; this creates two handles that make the piece easy to carry and move about. The tray top can also be detached and used for serving.”

“The stool utilizes a square seat that sits locked in place between four notched legs. The ‘H’ shaped leg pieces are slightly torqued inward which holds the seat in tension. The ‘X’ shaped crossbeams also lock in place.”
