As part of their NGV exhibition, ‘Burb Mechanics’, Nuud Studio investigated the design potential of transforming common household materials, which are readily available at hardware stores, into furniture.
By reimagining how timber mouldings can be used, the Melbourne designers transformed household building products such as dowels, skirting and trims, into a contemporary DIY furniture series.
To encourage and inspire others to create their own exclusive furniture designs, Nuud Studio developed a series of project guides that can be adapted and customised.
View prototypes in the gallery below, take a look at our Design Ideas section for the project guides.
Nuud Studio values the craftsmanship and complexity involved in making Porta’s timber mouldings. The products were selected for their aesthetic appeal and design features, as well as being relatively inexpensive and readily available in hardware stores.
Furniture projects include –
- Sunshine Drawers
- Caroline Springs Cabinet
- Hoddle Totem Shelving
- Fairfield Stool
