paul crofts studio’s ‘assembled’ collection is the first storage range for british furniture company isomi, comprising five modular pieces in douglas fir timber. crafted with a minimal aesthetic, the collection is kept intentionally simple in form, with a clear focus on materiality and construction.

‘chamfer’, the first piece in the collection, is a system of connecting modules that lock into a wider frame

 

 

paul crofts designed the timber units to complement isomi’s existing range of metal and concrete reception desks, tables and seating, yet they can work equally well as stand-alone pieces. details are presented both at the front and the back of each piece, offering the possibility to be placed both mid-floor and against a wall or partition. the collection includes five highly flexible storage and display systems that can be stacked together.
