When Ed Reynolds saw how much used furniture was ending up in landfills in the United States, he decided to do something about it, and started a new furniture company that would make furniture that simply used less material, took up less space, and could be used for a multitude of different reasons and rooms, so that it would be easier to reuse or sell. He wrote about it on his site, saying:
“Most modular furniture today primarily serves only one functional use, like modular shelving for storage, or modular sofas for seating. I wanted to design a system that could be reconfigured to serve multiple functional uses and continue to adapt as needs and spaces change.”
His flatpack furniture is very cool, modern and super stylish. The company, called Mojuhlar, makes their furniture from top quality Baltic birch plywood which has feen finished with a Wilsonart laminate. Then, they drill a pattern of holes into the pieces so that they can be fastened together in a number of different ways, creating tons of opportunities for variety. They even use a special kind of screw that fits flush with the wood so that you don’t have the issue of exposed screw heads.
