Day one at CA Boom introduced me to a number of great designers. One “first timer” at the show caught my eye right away – designer Chris Jamison was exhibiting furniture from his line, Plywood Office.

As you might guess, his pieces are made of plywood. The little benches pictured here have a future-mod quality, with a curvilinear top and angled legs, and a little storage slot like an elementary school desk.

What’s most eye-catching about these is the natural texture and pattern of the wood surface – each has stripes of multiple widths and shades (though some are painted a solid color). I’ll take some photos tomorrow and post them to give a better sense of the unique material. Looking forward to what comes next from the fledgling Plywood Office.
