Earlier today we featured objects made of tarmac. Now here's some furniture made of bricks by designers Rachel Griffin of Earnest Studio in Rotterdam and Emilie Pallard of Eindhoven.

The Building series features lengths of wood slotted through the holes in different types of bricks to make a bench, table, shoe-rack and lamp.

The project is on show as part of an exhibition called Craft and Scenography at Depot Basel in Switzerland until 11 July.

The exhibition also includes a clever shop display system by German designer Michael Schoner - see our earlier story.

Here are some more details from the designers:


Construction elements have a beautiful, functional aesthetic, one that is largely ignored in interior products.

Earnest Studio (Rachel Griffin) and Emilie Pallard seek to change this with their project, Building.

The project reinterprets traditional exterior bricks for use in the interior by combining them with refined wooden components.

The result is a series of objects that use the weight of the bricks as an anchor and the wooden elements to functionally and aesthetically tie the structure together.

The pieces are designed to be monochromatic, with the natural colors of the wood complementing the colors of the brick.

    Seriously? The last time I had plank and brick furniture I was in a terrible flat with stoners aged 18.
