Dematerialization by La Kutateladze, an industrial designer born and based in Tbilisi, Georgia, is a furniture collection that focuses on the contrast of materials. It essentially juxtaposes the quality of two different materials to bring attention to the use of refined, artisan woodworking. Granted, some people might be more enamored with the cheaper materials since that is what gives the designs a modern touch.

Through Dematerialization by La Kutateladze, there is a commentary on polar opposites such as "elaborate or simple, recycled or wasted, effortless or intricate," writes Design Milk. More than that, the furniture collection delves into the idea of wanting and needing, something that is sorely tested on a daily basis for those living in urban cities.
