As children, many of us played with the small wooden puzzles that required creative thinking to separate all of the pieces. Bulgarian company Praktrik has created a series of flat pack tables that echo these brain-teasing toys.
The tables are assembled without fasteners, using only notches in the wood and tension to hold them together. Their manufacturing requires no special equipment, and they are made from eco-friendly and sustainable materials.
Each piece can easily be disassembled and assembled again repeatedly with no ill effects, to the thanks of the uniquely simple construction.
The names of the furniture objects are all derived from the number of different elements used in their construction multiplied by the number of pieces – thus a mathematical equation represents each piece’s title.
“Praktrik is the perfect blend between design and functionality. We create sustainable, innovative and mind joggling puzzle furniture pieces that suit every need. Interlocking puzzles are very special structures. They combine mysticism, structural rationalism, and interactivity in one. Interlocking puzzles are very special structures. They combine mysticism, structural rationalism, and interactivity in one. They embody the perfect composition where either adding or subtracting elements can destroy it.”
“Designers of such brainteasers are like magicians, they show us how material objects that look impossible can become a reality. Magic of course is not required, only a bit of simple trickery. Tricks, that we believe can also power everyday lives for practical purposes. This is what we do – practical tricks! We started this company with the vision to blend practical puzzles with the aesthetics of a clean design.”
“Over the years we have developed our collections, striving to deliver high quality with a creative twist. We believe that through providing innovative and customizable solutions to interior spaces, we will continue successfully challenging perceptions of standard furniture compositions.”
