'Grassworks' exhibition at the Aram Gallery

Until 31 October the Aram Gallery showcases ‘Grassworks’ – the most recent creations of Jair Straschnow. The Amsterdam-based Israeli designer developed a comprehensive collection of flatpacked furniture which are based on one single material – bamboo sheet laminate – and on the the manipulation of traditional interlocking woodworking techniques.

A good example is Jair’s reworking of the dovetail joint, an old principle of slotting pieces of wood that have opposing sloped angles to wedge themselves against one another – without any need for screws or glue.

The beauty of Jair Straschnow’s pieces lies in the obvious logic of the construction which also enables the user to assamle the pieces intuitionally.
