Including, amongst other items, a picnic table and bench and a convertible dining chair, Grassworks is designed to be as simple, space-saving and sustainable as possible. As a fast growing grass, bamboo can be quickly replenished without causing any impact on the local environment. But it’s perhaps the simplicity of the design that really distinguishes the Grassworks collection from other products. Using variations of the traditional dovetail joint, the individual Grassworks elements simply slot together without the need for permanent fixings. Which of course means that they can also be easily taken apart again. Considering space as a resource, the intention behind this collection is to try and use it wisely – multi purpose objects that fold, collapse and flat pack.
