UK-based rolf sachs has teamed up with linley collaborations to create a series of unique traditionally crafted pieces of cabinetry. presented as part of the 2012 london design festival, sachs has conceived ‘q-ubes’ and ‘stack-ed desk’, two designs that apply a playful and unconventional approach to furniture.

influenced by the idea of buliding blocks where individual elements can be curated in a personal and free manner with infinite configurations, ‘q-ubes’ demonstrates the ability for systems to result in practical, individual stand-alone pieces that have room to grow and change over time.

‘stack-ed’ reflects on the aesthetic composition of storing and drying freshly cut timber. constructed from layered panels of untreated solid wood, the design features no nails or screws. a deconstruction of the creation frees the object from the constraints of a more conventional piece of furniture. the individualism of the drawers, where fabrics, materials and functions are used in surprising ways, heightens the curiosity and interaction with the user.
