Extensions 03 by Aïssa Logerot

Paris designer Aïssa Logerot has designed a collection of furniture comprising interchangeable components lashed together with string.


The range includes a table, lamp and shelving that can be assembled and dismantled without nails, glue or screws.


Parts from each piece can be combined as required.


Photographs are by Véronique Huyghe.

Here is some text from the designer:


This project questions contemporary furniture design, from the concept of multipurpose use and uncertain quality (due to rationalized industrial production), to the ambition or desire for durability.


Products are envisaged in a non-fixed state, to be extended or lengthened, according to uses which vary and evolve over time.


The furniture range is design in a way to be assembly without nail, screws or glue.


You just need a natural cotton string for the assembly of the different elements.


First step is to mount the wood part, simplify by different colored landmarks (inside the wood assembly).


After, you only need to lock the position with the cotton string, in a simple way.


If you have an Extensions kit table, you can adapted the position of your furniture when you want, by changing some elements. For example, it is possible to lenghten the table with adding other pieces of wood, or to change its height by taking off the base of the feet, to have a low table, or a bench. As you want.


Starting with assembly and a concern for eco-design, I rethought the idea of furniture in kit form, taking into account packaging, transportation, storage, mounting and dismantling by the user.


This lamp has a few possibilities: it could be used as a floor lamp, or be fixed on other extensions furnitures to have different lighting.
