Volksware’s Meterware scrap tables bring new meaning to “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” Not only do we love the endearing combination of mis-matched table parts, but we love the way in which the tables are produced and distributed: discarded tables are assembled as an infinitely long table, then on request, a piece of the table is sawed off to the customer’s desired length. It’s like Bounty’s ‘Select-A-Size’ paper towels- for furniture! Like Volksware’s clothing carpet, the tables are part of Volksware’s METERWARE Shop.

Volksware is an Amsterdam-based design studio founded in 1999 by Silke Wawro, a graduate from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy.
