Comments Off on Plankton’s Lock Bamboo Dining Table Brings an Interesting Twist to Dinner

Designed by Plankton , the Lock dinner table is designed and formed to take advantage of the qualities, possibilities and characteristics of its highly sustainable material: bamboo . The frame is built up using layers of flexible bamboo, which are pressed together and then twisted and weaved through each other locking into place. The end result is a mix of nature and mathematics, and a super strong and dynamic shape. The table seats 5 to 6 people. + Plankton The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
