Traditional furniture is bulky and can use a lot of materials, while digitally fabricated and flat packed furniture reduces material waste, and doesn't require many skills to assemble. Based out of Aguascalientes, Mexico, Avo Studio created these attractive, flat pack living room pieces that were inspired by Mexican textiles, using parametric design tools.

The TRAMA series is a coffee table and side table made out of MDF (medium density fiberboard) with an oak veneer. It consists of several pieces that are slotted into one another to form a supporting framework, upon which the table top rests and is locked into. It's a clever design that assembles easily with no tools or fasteners, and looks sturdy too.

The "18" stool has an intriguing shape, generated from a hexagon that has been truncated in various spots. The intricate patterning results from playing with the lines that connect the vertices, which has been engraved with a CNC machine. The designers say that the legs are arranged to create a "torsional" feel to it, and triangular supports have been added to give the stool extra strength.

Fun, simple but strong, these are excellent examples of flat pack furnishings that are made with high-tech means, but thanks to the materials used, still feel familiar and would make any space look more stylish. See more of Avo Studio's work on their site and on Behance.
