KDRVD3 Hall Table

In KDRVD Martin continues his exploration of a construction that dates back to when we strapped some branches together to build out first shelters and is still used today in ‘developing’ societies. This project is a combination of two previous projects, KDR and RVD, which both originating from an identity project in school. The ‘Node joint’ was also the construction used by Gerrit  Rietveld nearly a hundred years ago to create his iconic Red and Blue chair.

Today our lives a less settled, many of us move house regularly, we are urban nomads and thus we need our furniture to be easily transported.

KDRVD is a fusion of traditional woodworking techniques and computer controlled cutting, the result of which is a contemporary flat pack solution to our present day requirements, which is easily assembled and disassembled like a 3D puzzle.

The KDRVD range can be tailored to any environment and budget, it comes in a variety of wood species and surface colours/materials.
