Designed with Gigi Lui and Peter An. 

Intent Statement
Through mirroring the structure of old lumber houses, MU strives to spark conversations around sustainability and upcycling in the lumber industry. This table and bench set is handcrafted out of reclaimed old growth douglas fir wood and imperfections such as nail marks were embraced in accordance to the philosophy of wabi sabi. 

Key Features
• Tight grained, 3x stronger than standard lumber
• RTA (ready to assemble) joinery system
• Faciliates working, dining, and leisure environments

Raw Wood
We sourced our 2x4s from Unbuilders, a local demolition company. Imperfections such as nail marks, rust, cracks, and mold are present in these pieces. 
Lamination Process
After jointing and planing the wood, we laminated them together to create wood panels.
