The trestles have cast supports at the joints and can be combined with timber elements to create different furniture forms.

"It is about sustainability, timelessness and a dynamic function," says Mattias Ståhlbom of TAF. "The wooden part is replaceable and can be cut for different heights and needs."

It is about sustainability, timelessness and a dynamic function. Due to the cast reinforcement, like support stockings, the durability increases. The wooden part is replaceable and can be cut for different heights and needs.
