Flat Pack Bed – IDEA 2020

Flat Pack Bed

The design is made from extremely thin, cost-effective, Australian-made plywood. The plywood is sliced instead of sawn, creating little waste and increasing material stability and strength. The 12mm plywood’s flexibility is exploited by curving components for added stability, while its lightweight properties save on weight and space for transportation. Constructed using CNC routing, the manufacturing process is energy and time efficient, and the base uses no extraneous physical fasteners. The base is easy to transport and is packed using old bicycle tubes.
