The collection, named Kink, consists of a table, chair, writing table, cantilever chair, sideboard, shelving unit, coffee table and floor lamp.
Slabs of pine form chair seats and backs, table tops and shelves.
The project will be on show as part of an exhibition named Funktionale Beschädigung - The Beauty of Deliberate Kinks, Dents and Bends.
Here is some more furniture by Osko+Deichmann on Dezeen:
The text below is from Osko+Deichmann:
On show is a family of tubular steel furniture called "Kink". The tubing used in the furniture is not bent - as is normally the case – but rather functionally folded, dented and kinked.
The chairs, tables and other furniture derive their final form and function by means of this intentional process of "damaging" the tubular steel.
The process' traces, which would normally be regarded as defects, are in fact integral to the design.

For the exhibition, "Happy Birthday Bauhaus", we created the "Straw Chair", a functional homage to the classic Cantilever Chair made of kinked, tubular steel.
A second four-legged and stackable version of the "Straw Chair" was introduced on the occasion of the Stockholm Furniture Fair by Blå Station in 2010. It was bestowed the +1 Award for the year's best new product.
The "Kink" series consists of a table, chair, writing table, cantilever chair, sideboard, shelf, coffee table and floor lamp made of tubular steel, pine wood and clamps.
All exhibited objects are part of a small limited edition and exclusively available at HELMRINDERKNECHT contemporary design gallery.
