Wooden fruit crates were the point of depar- ture for this furniture – chairs, a table and a lamp. This shoddy material and unsophi- sticated technology presented no small challenge. The designer first disassembled some crates, and then used a staple gun to put them back together in a more solid fashion. This practical experience allowed him to develop a chair, and then the remaining pieces of the set. This inexpensive furniture could be mass produced. The stylistic effect suggests an alternative atmosphere, which could be attractive for interiors of cafes or clubs where young people go. The crates’ producers might also expand the product line.
