‘The pieces have infinite variations in how they can be customised and changed. Our model open up all these possibilities by giving customers creative control,’ says designer Santiago Restrepo. ‘It would be limiting for only us, the designers, to explore all the typologies and variations of how to assemble the pieces.’
The furniture is assembled easily without adhesive or nails using angled cuts in the joints that slot together, and the chairs use a popular Colombian weaving technique.
