Inspired by the construction of Japanese wood assembly, the Ter table and stool set is constructed without the use of any glue, nails or screws.
Made from nine components of wood pieces that are intricately pieced together and held together by the weight and pressure of the flat top plate, the design by Christian Ferrara intersects the lines between traditional handicraft and modern technology. When the Ter table and stool is pieced together, the result is a rigid and sturdy construction; a design that has existed for thousands of years in Asia and still widely used together in the construction industry. Each piece of the table and stool can be dismantled and taken apart for flat packing. The top plate is, according to Ferrara, fairly heavy but exudes a lightweight appearance due to the bevel that is placed on its corners.
