Today's installment of our series on what you just might see at HauteGREEN next month features Plywood Office Stripe(S) series of bent plywood furniture. The matching end and coffee tables are a study in clean yet striking modern design, and they do an amazing job with resource efficiency; the end table uses one sheet of 3/4" plywood, and the coffee table uses two sheets. That's it. The "stripes" that make up each table are are carefully bent from bamboo, birch or walnut, fastened together with TreeHugger-friendly glues and topped of with non-toxic finishes. Says designer Chris Jamison, "The most important thing this line does is communicate the nature of the materials used. Instead of hiding the reality of the material (the resources consumed plus the process of making it) we celebrate the nature and beauty of it." With results like this, we hope the celebration never ends. ::HauteGREEN and ::Plywood Office
