“Brace is a functionalist exploration in pushing structural details to the highest levels of refinement and usefulness. A brace is a structural element that serves to strengthen, steady or support. In this furniture collection (consisting of a dining table, chair, bench, stool, and step stool), the prominent crossbeam structure establishes a visual and functional allusion to the pieces’ assembly and construction methods. The same thickness wood segments make up all parts of the support structures, as well as the tabletop and seats surfaces. The tabletop and seat surfaces are all also halfway sunken-in to their respective frame structures, creating an offset that visually delineates all the elements as separate entities which further highlights the beams’ presence. All the pieces have a knock-down construction and set-up and disassemble with ease.”
