experimental hybrid furniture by kata monus

hungarian textile designer kata monus has created an experimental storage piece in which soft material is organically integrated with wood in a way that it breaks free of the customary standards of furniture manufacturing. textile goes beyond its application and becomes an independent component of the object, connecting the two ashen elements as a knitted structure running through holes.
