Contraforma - Pixel Dining Set

Contraforma's Pixel dining set - small squares of oak, combined to create solid tables and chairs.
Off-cuts of oak were combined together to create a new one-piece product. The key to the product is the use of many small pieces of natural solid oak – individually weak, but collectively strong...Cross-grained wood provides 7 times greater strength and stability to the table compared with solid oak furniture constructed using traditional techniques. Using this technology the furniture range becomes virtually unbreakable and incredibly durable.
