Furniture that folds and unfolds, does it speak to you? Some time ago, we were already talking about these indoor supplies that reveal their secrets, in a single gesture. But also, these other furniture, this time, cardboard-based ! In the vast field of interior design, the tips for gain some ground are very popular. So to do this, many designers have thought of stratagems ingenious, like the cabinetmaker we are going to present to you today.
Brian Ignaut is a talented craftsman. In the manner of origami, the malleable tables he creates are very practical to optimize living spaces. Yet who would have thought that space engineer Space X, specialized in the solar panels which equip the satellites, would be destined to the work of the wood?
The adventure is running since last summer. His history ? About a year and a half ago, Brian was walking around and he came across this carpentry shop in Venice. He started talking with the owner, Tom Adams, practicing in this area. woodshop since 25 years. The subject of conversation? Their shared fascination with origami and wood. A little later, these two began to tinker based on the design of the Loop Table and that's how the first table idea came true!
When Tom left for work, he suggested that Brian use his workshop waiting. The budding cabinetmaker therefore decided to take 3 months leave, far from his initial work at Space X. And during the first two months of this breakwhat began as a simple "distraction" turned into something more serious. In July 2018, he created Degrees of Freedom, his own cabinetmaking company.
Fun thing: Degrees of Freedom is a real little family affair, since even the parents of Brian participated in realizing the logo of the box, as well as its graphic identity.
To succeed at produce and sell his first product, that will have taken him 5 months (much longer than he had planned)! But Brian is very proud of the result and does not regret anything. After leaving his job, he gave himself body and soul for his project. His goal ? That his company could adopt a good pace of work, which would allow him to put on sale furniture designs both "cool and affordable".
This last detail remains to be seen, because it is now necessary to count approximately 1500 euros for one of his folding tables. Logic: we do not sell expertise and talent. So, to get a hybrid of space technology and origami in your living room, do not hesitate to visit shop Etsy.
This kind of inspiring story necessarily puts good mood ! The fruit of Brian's work is impressive and his foldable furniture are a real solution to save space. What do you think ?
