Today we show you BUDS, another project saw at SaloneSatellite in the spaces of iSaloni 2013
, a shelving system created by the designers and architects from Japanese studio Architect Taitan
. A series of folding and portable furniture realized with traditional techniques derived by Japanese architecture, joint design methodologies that doesn’t require the use of nails, screws or glues for the assembly and union of the components. A product of superior craftsmanship made of birch wood, waterproof plywood and ash, a structure that is inspired by nature, trying to recreate a sort of home forest, where the plugs are likened to buds of trees, the shelves works like branches and leaves, and the pillars as the stems of plants and flowers. A modular and highly flexible piece of furniture, able to stretch to infinity and create different solutions: exhibitors, shelves holding objects, libraries and seats. Simple and resistant elements that when combined leave the user free to develop the structure according to his needs and space availability.
