Mexico City-based Cyntia Briano Alamillo, of Collaptes, handcrafts wooden furniture, mostly doing away with the need of screws and any chemical solvents, and instead focusing on the raw material. Many of their pieces are made up of wooden components that make up each piece fit together like a puzzle therefore requiring no fasteners.
Wanting to focus on producing environmentally friendly furniture, Alamillo works at reducing waste and cuts as many parts as possible out of each wood board.
The Macadamia Chair (in all images above) is made from 6 pieces of cut wood that fit and stay together by the weight of the person sitting in it.
The Piccolin Table is a dining table that seats four.
The Briano Chair helps you maintain an ergonomic posture while sitting. It’s made from nine pieces and four chairs can be made per wood board.
The Lava Stool comes as six pieces that the user easily slips together. Three stools can be made from one board.
