Flat-Pack Furniture Fuses Form and Function
Artist and fabricator Christy Oates is a master at blurring the lines between decoration and furniture. Her origami-inspired pieces have the detail and beauty of traditional wood-working, while her manufacturing processes–which include computer-aided design (CAD) and laser-cut, CNC machines–are decidedly new school. Check above video to see how they are made.
She makes tables, desks, chairs and even lamps that hang flush with the wall. She designed them for small spaces, knowing that even pieces of art can do double duty. See more of her work and get more info at her website: www.christyoates.com
