MEW / Modular Side Table

MEW
MEW

Inspired by traditional Japanese wood joinery and modern cutting technology capabilities, MEW is a simple, sustainable and versatile modular side table that can be rearranged to suit individuals needs. Various designs of side tables and coffee tables can be created by playing around with different arrangements of its three small individual tables. Constructed by water-jet cutting sheets of 6mm and 12mm locally sourced Hoop Pine plywood, MEW can be transported flat-packed to save energy. It uses various types of unique slotted connections that allows it to be easily assembled without adhesives, fixtures or fittings.
