after seeing the classic 606 shelving system by dieter rams, sehun oh sought to incorporate its modular design elements into his ‘plumb furniture series’. the pieces use three different variations of angled connectors: 83°, 90° and 97° to create a rigid structure while allowing the user to modify each work to its specific context. the connectors are manufactured via injected mould processes creating durable joints suitable for daily use.

version 2 of the chair features lighter weight construction and more versatile joints, by creating a recessed space with a curved opening, the connections off customizability
