Stick insects are sets of elements that can be used for construction of furniture, appliances, installations. They offer the possibility to create an infinite number of structures thanks to their simple and universal design. Three pieces of furniture – table, bookshelf, lamp – are an example of the potential of the project.
The project has been inspired by personal experience of the designer. It is a search for the most universal module that can be useful in as many situations as possible.
The project makes use of ash wood (25 mm x 25 mm slats) which is hard enough to resist crushing and has very good design properties. Fastening elements are made of duralumin PA6 that can be easily shaped (additionally anodized to protect against oxidization).
