korea-based design studio PESI reveals an extension for 2017 collection of side tables ‘lumber’ — the easier to assemble cardboard shelves join the series. called ‘timber’, the new piece explores the durability and expandability of cardboard and uses an original joint system recently developed by the brand which comes from korean traditional woodworking joints.

PESI has selected racks as the subject due to the team’s belief that this piece of furniture is the most flexible one. ‘using this new joint system, we have designed a shelf collection to reveal the possibility of expansion of it, because we think a shelf has the most potential to be expanded,’ explains the team.

timber can be assembled into 75 different shelf formations that vary in length and height, with 15 different types of sections. a section is cut by the die-cutting press, one of the standard methods for processing cardboard.

the disassembled parts of timber come as a flat-pack, which gives extreme efficiency to storage and transportation. then the sections are ‘rolled’ into several rectangle-shaped cardboard planks and finally fixed together with PVC rivets by the buyers themselves.
