Material : Cardboard, PVC rivet

We designed a self-assembly shelf collection named ‘Timber’, using simple processed cardboards and PVC rivets. The project was approached for to expand the cardboard furniture collection that we designed before; ‘Lumber’ which was designed to study new usability and expandability of a cardboard. We were inspired by the Korean traditional wood-working joints and developed a system which gives a new formative language to the cardboard furniture.


The ‘Timber’ can be assembled into total 75 different shelf formations that vary in length and height, with 15 different types of sections. The section for ‘Timber’ is cut by die-cutting press, one of the standard methods for processing cardboard. Un-rolled sections of ‘Timber’ come as a flat-pack, which give extreme efficiency on storage and transportation. Then the sections are rolled into several rectangular shaped cardboard planks, and finally fixed together with PVC rivets by the buyers themselves.

우리는 단순 가공된 골판지와 PVC 리벳을 사용해 조립식 선반 콜렉션 ‘TIMBER’를 디자인을 디자인하였다. 이 프로젝트는 골판지의 새로운 사용성과 확장성을 연구한 ‘LUMBER’ 콜렉션의 연장선으로 진행되었다. 우리는 ‘전통 목재 결합방식’에서 영감 받아, 골판지 가구에 새로운 조형언어를 부여하는 새로운 결합 체계를 설계하였다.


‘TIMBER’는 15가지의 부품을 활용하여 높이와 길이가 다른 75가지의 선반을 조합할 수 있다. 각 부품은 die-cutting press 가공으로 제작되었으며, flat-pack 형식으로 포장되어 보관과 운송에 용이하다. 각 부품은 소비자들이 직접 사각형의 각재로 말아 PVC 리벳을 통해 조립한다.
