Opendesk, the open-source furniture brand, has released two new pieces of furniture that further democratize the process of acquiring high quality, attractive items. The company collaborated with designers in Chicago and London to create a desk and a shelving unit that not only have open-source designs but can also be assembled without the need for any tools whatsoever.
The Bundle Desk and Linneas bookshelf, as the two pieces are named, make use of traditional Japanese joinery. Without any screws, hinges, nails, or glue, consumers can construct the solid pieces thanks to the ingenious carpentry technique.
Consumers can purchase flat-packed versions of furnishings for assembly at home, or they can download the specs for the pieces (as well as any other Opendesk products) on the company's website if they're interested in cutting and shaping them on their own.
