MesaMAIS / Dining Table


MAIS (portuguese for "more") is a concept that arises from the cruciform fittings obtained only from the computerized cutting of panels. The total elimination of permanent joints makes the furniture, beyond it's elegance, extremely cost effective since the system allows for easy assembly (DFA) and disassembly (DFD), also making it sustainable from its inception to disposal - which is postponed to the fullest thanks to its timeless forms and their easier maintenance.
