Patchwork Wood: 3-Piece Recycled Office Furniture Series

Somewhat mid-century sensibilities inform the shapes of these designs, but what really sets them apart is the variegated strips of wooden refuse given new purpose on their surfaces.

Designed by Kann, this office set includes a desk, sideboard and shelving unit that combine basic white and numerous woods in each piece.

On surfaces of use, the collaged elements are sanded smooth and finished accordingly, while on the sides of the desk, for instance, a rough three-dimensionality remains for effect.

In turn, support and contrast pieces – the vertical elements in the bookcase, trim and secondary sides on the desk and sideboar, provide a neutral point of contrast for the mixed woods.
