This bamboo furniture set uses one of the world’s most versatile, solid and beautiful materials and infuses it with steel and glass to create a stylish, contemporary set. The set is created by Poetic Lab and was spotted at Salone Satellite 2014.

It’s not rare to see bamboo used as material for furniture, but often when it is, the pieces are fully made of it. These pieces use bamboo in atypical ways such as using the stalks for the legs of a table. The stalks are filled with stainless steel bars to keep them solid and it also provides a good joint to the glass table top.

The bamboo furniture doesn’t just stop at tables, there are also shelves and most interestingly bamboo lighting. These pieces open up the door for more bamboo furniture pieces.
