Lazerian is a creative Manchester-based practice that began in 2006, set up by Liam Hopkins, a Manchester born designer-maker.
Recently The studio came up with this light and sophisticated plywood-table, which gets its stability by the artfully patterned and flexible structure.
“Lazerian’s experimentation with plywood over the past two years has culminated in the creation of a new collection of furniture. Starting from a hands on exploration of plywood, Richard Sweeney and Liam Hopkins created a series of models with various connecting methods, including bolting and self-interlock. With the use of a CNC (computer numerically controlled) router, these models were further advanced to find structural forms capable of supporting weight. From this process emerged a distinctive collection of furniture, which makes use of both raw and laminated birch plywood.”
