In collaboration with Rustbelt Welding.

With the Rustbelt fabrication team, I designed┬áthis series of flat-packable steel furniture. The profiles are cut out of 1/4″ plate steel and fit together exclusively by friction. No fasteners or glue are used.

Total time from initial concept to debut exhibition was 72 hours. Sketches were worked out in two hours, measured production documents in another three hours, fabrication turnaround was 36 hours and assembly was quick and seamless on the first try.

The furniture set is designed to be manufactured remotely. Any local steel fabricator can plasma cut these profiles out of [2] 4’x8′ sheets of steel, eliminating the need for shipping costs.
