At first glance clinically plain and unassuming, when opened, this two-piece minimalist, geometric seat-cum- side table reveals an angular, sculpture-like structure which contrasts with the design’s otherwise unadorned exterior. Created by a young Swedish designer and founder of Studio Vision, Mattias Stenberg, the aptly-named ‘Within’ was presented earlier last week in Stockholm Furniture Fair’s hall for independent designers and design schools, Greenhouse.

More about the design:

 

‘ ‘Within’ is a two piece side table/seat. The pieces fit together completely and when closed that create the shape of a simple white box. As you gradually open the pieces you reveal the organically shaped ash structure. I have strived to create a very “engineered” or constructed look of the ash structure by using few straight lines and arranging the grain direction of the wood to increase the perception of depth.

 

‘It is intended as a furniture piece for a private or public market and can serve as well as a seat as a side table. The number of ways to arrange the individual pieces against each other are almost endless and each arrangement creates a new installation and a new way of viewing the piece.’
