'1x6' by Praktrik

The Bulgarian brand Praktrik realises a large range of furniture all inspired by burr puzzles. The components of the flat pack pieces are made from solid wood without the use of any high-tech tools or machinery – which also explains the rather low pricing. The different bases are composed of a certain number of wooden sticks which are easy to assemble and stay together without the need of glue or nails.

Here is what the designer explains:

“I see great potential for facilitating their principles for utilitarian purposes. Their production requires no hi-tech, they can be made of natural, ecological, and healthy (harmless) materials, they are assemblable and disassemblable, they can also be fun. The name of a particular piece of furniture comes from the logic of its structure. It consists of the number of different element types multiplied by the number of elements of each type. The whole mathematical expression gives the total number of wooden parts.”
