Perhacs Studio showcased a new line of modular pendant lights that are laser cut from cardboard and other low-impact materials. Each lamp is assembled without screws or glue from 8 “leaves” that can be interchanged to form an incredible variety of shapes.

Plywood Office unveiled “Hammy”, a breezy hammock that is suspended above an integrated wood platform with a flower planter. We can’t imagine a more relaxing chaise for a warm sunny day!

We were thrilled to see Vancouver-based Organelle Design showcase one of their “Hangeliers” made from repurposed clothes hangers at Model Citizens. Each intricate chandelier is made from wood hangers, bike rims, chain rings, and zip ties.
