suggestion #1 (dressing table) all images courtesy of david graas studio

amsterdam-based designer david graas conceived ‘everything but the manual’, a furniture

system with an endless combination

to the final shape of the material. an individual possessing this work is given a cube comprised of 260 identical oak pieces intended to be connected by bolts and screws without the use of a manual. consistent with graas’ love of flexibility in design, he produced ‘everything but the manual’ with the intent for experimentation in the execution of design by the owner of the piece. graas’ three interpretations of the cube are on display in the 10 makers/ 10 stages exhibition at studio liverse for dutch design week 2011.

the piece will also be shown during maison et objet 2012 in the exhibition ‘knock on wood’ at the toolsgalerie in paris from  january 17th until march 10th.
