Disassembled 'Bento' chair by Form Us With Love; photo by Jonas Lindström

In an attempt to ‘bridge the gap between high-design and flatpack furniture’, the Stockholm-based design studio Form Us With Love have developed this series of semiflat-packable furniture in collaboration with a new Scandinavian brand, One Nordic Furniture Company. Named after the Japanese slang word for ‘convenient’ as well as the Finnish tradition of bentwood, the pared-down design of ‘Bento’ features characteristic broad legs and both of the products; the chair as well as the table (available in three different sizes), can be easily assembled in few steps, with no need of additional tools or manuals. The collection will be launched during next week’s Stockholm Design Week 2012 (6 – 12 February) at ‘Form Us With Friends’ exhibition at The Swedish Museum of Architecture.

'Cloud' table by Lorens

Anna and Marek Lorens, the duo behind their namesake Warsaw-based architectural and design practice Lorens have recently realised this modular table whose unusual structure – as well as the colour – reminded us of that of a honeycomb.
