Help us develop and learn about PLANK

PLANK is an easy to assemble furniture system using scaffolding boards and timber pallets - two readily available materials which can easily be re-used, often at no cost.

PLANK tries to be economical with the material used and the labour invested in making the pieces. It is inspired by Enzo Mari’s ‘Autoprogettazione’ principles de- veloped in the 1970s. Mari wanted to pro- duce ‘superior quality, functional furni- ture from ubiquitous materials in your own home’, conceived in reaction to the glut of mass produced furniture around at the time.

PLANK is being developed in collaboration with Swan Wharf - a temporary studio and events space taking shape in Hackney Wick, East London.
