Fields series by Antonin Bachet & Linda Topic (BELGIUM) 
//  part of Belgium is design
"These massive pieces of felt are produced by matting, condensing and pressing of woollen fibre. To make these adorned rugs, we use the ability of felt to merge two pre-felted coloured layers into one even surface. Following the aspiration of this ecological and energy-efficient technique, we designed patterns that resulted to a scrap-less and waste-free geometric cut." Antonin Bachet & Linda Topic

WAFFT table by t/m (Takaaki Tani / Kazunori Matsumura) (JAPAN)
The theme of the furniture is "waft"// They are made of plywood which is a hybrid between aluminum and beech wood. By compressing layers of the two, the result is thin yet flexible, each material compensating for the weaknesses of the other. The additional firmness is added by applying three-dimensional distortions, making it strong enough to support the weight. With a minimum amount of material used and with minimum processing, these airy products give an impressive lightness reminiscent of a leaf dancing in the air.

Bender by Paul Evermann (GERMANY)
''DIY furniture // The Idea was to design a stool that provides the opportunity of involving the customer into the designing process. The simple steel plate allows  to join different kinds and forms of used chair legs or just branches to generate individualized stools. By using cable ties the legs get joined to the seating plate.  To prevent the legs from buckling under heavy weight,  the construction is stabilized by four pre-stressed zip ties.  The cable ties allow a quick assembly of the stool without tools.  Due to the form of the seating plate Bender is stackable.''

The rugs are designed in a material which is treated with novel techniques that allow them to be washed and ironed easily, and they are made up of interlocking pieces that create amusing coloured hexagons, superimposed with triangular mathmatical shapes.  Made from 100% natural wool, ZIP rugs can be set up and dismantelled easily, as they are composed of straight, independent pieces, that interlock to form attractive patterns, in which the sides act as guides or instructions for setting them up. To obtain the perfect finish, the different pieces close with zips that allow optimum adjustment..
