Is research into affordability and uniqueness.
Is it possible to make affordable yet unique furniture?
The answer is Collection Black.
The entire collection is composed out of one single multiplex board, creating less waste and highlighting the sustainability of the project. Burning the wood results in a very pronounced texture making every object unique. The advantage of multiplex is that you can burn away layer by layer in order to achieve an interesting relief. No paint was used in the entire collection, contributing further to sustainability. The deep black colour can only be achieved by burning the objects. Everything has been given a final layer of varnish to make all objects usable.
