A Furniture Collection Made Using Traditional Techniques
View Slideshow

UK furniture brand Efasma launched its first ever collection at this year’s 100% Design during London Design Festival. The line was designed by London-based architects Bureau de Change who looked to the brand’s Greek origins for inspiration and saw to it that local craftsmen were used during production. The collaboration focused on using natural materials and traditional techniques which resulted in three-dimensional, handwoven textiles by the country’s weavers and basket makers.

100% cotton rope binds the wooden chair frames together making them functional. Nanotechnology was also utilized to help repel dirt from the cotton, adding to the product’s lifespan.
