One of Inhabitat’s favorite eco-design posses, EcoSystems, [2] will be unveiling its new line at next week’s BKLYN Designs showcase [3], but for you lucky readers we have an early offering: their new ‘snug-it!’ collection of affordable eco furniture, named after the brand’s innovative hardware connectors. One of our favorite pieces from the snug-it! collection is this desk, made from bamboo and FSC Appleply, both with natural oil finish.

EcoSystems [4] wanted to create a hassle-free, tool-free, ready-made furniture experience that also ships flat, so they came up with the snug-it connector system. The elegantly simple joinery will work with any ¾” material, and the connectors are also available separately for DIY furniture. Look out for TerraMai [5] reclaimed wood in other pieces as well.

Check back for more sneak peaks and our coverage of BKLYN Designs [6].
