I believe in the virtue of flatpack design. And these beautiful plywood accessories have made me very happy. Japanese company Flat Packables specializes on practical and simple objects that can bring some eye-candy to our homes without bring any clutter. Here is how Yu Ito, the designer behind ┬áthe brand, describes his vision: “As laser-cutting technology became increasingly accessible, I started to see a lot of poorly designed laser-cut products. That inspired me to introduce unique designs that are original in not only appearance but in how they interlock together.” Each piece is┬álaser-cut from plywood, hand-sanded and finished with beeswax. Beautifully packaged too. Flat Packables products are available on Etsy.
