Qiu's End Grain collection includes rectangular, triangular and hexagonal containers for storing small objects. There's also a clock, a ruler and a sliding box for keeping pencils in.
Each is patterned with zigzag and herringbone motifs, created by cutting offcuts of pine into five-millimetre-thick pieces and then glueing them together in alternate orientations.
The designer's aim was to utilise the properties of the wood's composition, similar to a project of the same name by London design studio Raw Edges.
While Raw Edges used the tiny tubes that make up the wood to transfer coloured dye through sections of the material, Qiu focused on the wood's natural patterns and translucency.
"I designed some simple forms like boxes to give more chance to show the material's beauty," said the designer, explaining that the size of the objects was dictated by the timber offcuts.
Qiu also found that by cutting the pine into 10-millimetre slices across the grain, the microscopic tubes allow a small amount of light to pass through.
Rather than utilise this feature for the accessories, he also created a window shutter to demonstrate the translucency and its potential for architectural applications.
Pine is commonly used in the furniture and construction industries because the trees grow quickly, meaning that the soft wood is relatively cheap.
However, sections of the material go to waste if they can't be used for large products, so Qiu wanted to highlight ways in which these pieces can be utilised.
"I want people to know that pine has a high-value application, and provides a good example of how to use off-cut timber," said Qiu.
Qiu created the End Grain collection while studying on the RCA's Design Products programme. The project is on display at the Show RCA 2015 graduate exhibition in London, which runs from 25 June to 5 July, along with a wooden spiral staircase that straps around any tree trunk and a collection of objects built using a new material made from plant fibres and naturally fermented cellulose.
