The M-Bamboo table is the first product designed by the Studio that incorporates bamboo surfaces. And because bamboo is a fast growing, replenishable grass it is also a sustainable resource.

When bamboo is compressed in to solid material it initially has the appearance of a high quality semi-hard wood, it transforms into a dark hardwood following treatment to avoid bacterial degradation for use outside.

The table comes in a dark chocolate coloured top for use outside or inside, or in a light caramel top for inside use only.

The frame of the M-Bamboo table is made of powder-coated aluminium as is the M-Bench which fits the table perfectly.

Easychair: Transforming Sustainable Furniture

The easychair is designed to fold up and effectively transform into a different chair, reversing the seat and adjusting the height.

The easychair was designed by Amsterdam based designer Jair Straschnow as part of the Grasswork series. The range evolved from a series of experiments in self-assembly furniture and is designed to be simple, space-saving and sustainable.

The chairs are made from bamboo laminate sheets, a sustainable source.  Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth and can be harvested again and again from the same stalk.
