Looking for a simple seating alternative that’s eco-friendly and won’t take up a lot of space? Then check out ByProducts’ eco-conscious, clever, and compact tables and stools, which are made from discarded wood cutoffs [1]. Constructed from baltic birch, each chair and table capitalizes on the shapes of the offcuts that they were sourced from. The simplified process also removes the need for additional machining, and the joining system allows for each piece to be quickly assembled, disassembled and flat packed away. UK-based designers Eujin Pei [2]and Yingying Seow aim to extend their range of ByProducts by working with other manufacturers who use different materials for their future pieces.
