Rustic Materials + Modern Style = Sexy Matchstick Furniture


This suite of furniture from Tel Aviv design company Godspeed looks like matchsticks held together with string, but in a strikingly elegant way. According to the designers, this was the goal.

The collection, known appropriately as The Stick Collection, arose from a curiosity about the appropriateness of certain materials. Could “sticks” be used to make permanent and solid furnishings?

Constructed of something that looks like it came from someone’s back yard and held together with zip ties, the Stick Collection pieces look like they might simply tip over and fall apart if you are brave enough to sit on or balance your drink on one.

But despite their fragile appearances, these rustic-meets-modern furnishings have enough strength and more than enough style to deal with daily life.
