Shortlisted for furniture design of the year at Dezeen Awards 2020, Essential is a furniture range that has been sourced, developed and manufactured from discarded timber within a 10-mile radius of its production location.
The studio sets out to dramatically reduce the energy and resources required for producing domestic furniture, while still creating pieces that will be loved and used in everyday life.
This project questions the existing production cycle of commercial furniture and redefines what is essential to design, produce, consume and use at home.
Essential merges responsible material sourcing, critical design thinking and key manufacturing, to create beautiful furniture for daily use.
Designer: Viewport Studio
