stacked layers of CLT wood + chip foam form ‘pipe dream’ furniture series


‘pipe dreams’ by douglas & company utilizes leftover material to unveil a new collection of furniture including a daybed, bench, and stool. the collection is manifested in cross-laminated timber (CLT) and high-density chip foam complemented with a touch of blush pink leather. simple geometric shapes are built up by stacking uniform layers of wood and foam, leaving the material strata exposed to evidence. stacked layers of CLT wood + chip foam form this furniture collection

the collection’s title suggests a state of reverie: ‘conceiving of and launching a new collection amidst omnipresent uncertainty felt like a fanciful scheme at first,’ says liani douglas, one half of douglas & company duo. ‘but we decided to banish our current state of limbo in favour of a previously unimaginable new reality which is revealing itself. the pure geometric assembly and plump curves of the collection evokes a playful dreamlike state, fitting for a not-so-fleeting daydream.’stacked layers of CLT wood + chip foam form this furniture collection

the material gives a nod to repurposing as the CLT was surplus material from a recent construction project and the chip foam an element that is made up of pieces of scrap foam chipped and bonded together. CLT made up of high-pressured bonded 20-40mm timber boards in perpendicular layers, provide incredible stability and structural capacity to the coniferous softwoods used for the panels. this layered fabrication process inspired the form and construction of the new pieces.stacked layers of CLT wood + chip foam form this furniture collection
