The Stacked Series Celebrates an Unexpected Material

A line of desk accessories that celebrates the often overlooked materiality of plywood – that’s the Stacked series from Nine Yards Studio. In this collection, the softer sides of the wood are highlighted in objects with fluid forms and smooth contoured surfaces that will leave you second guessing everything. The line features a clock, a lamp, two different size storage cups, and a bean-shaped storage container. Each piece, through a mix of craftsmanship and technology, highlights the material they’re produced from, and can be nestled together to form a family of objects.
