'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.


'Piegato' by Serafini

This flat pack shelf made from laser cut sheet metal was designed by the Berlin based designer Matthias Ries and showcased at this year’s imm cologne.

As ‘Piegato’ consists of one piece, the assembly and the bending-out of the angles and shelves by hand can be finished in a short period of time and can be easily handled by one person.

'Unique IKEA' by Kenyon Jeh

The young Taiwanese designer Kenyon Jeh made his own creations of the standardized flat pack furniture he ordered at a big Swedish furniture store.

“I have simply composed the kits into customized furniture to suit my personal preference, adding some new details along the way. The process is liberating and brings a limitless attitude of possibility to the flat pack market”, Kenyon Jeh explains.

'Grassworks' exhinition at the Aram Gallery

'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.
