Plywood is a versatile material which can be cut, moulded or bent to create affordable furniture. Indonesian designer Ivan Christianto uses reclaimed plywood and pine to create this series of distinctive furniture that explores emotional sentiments brought by strolls through the bustling city of Jakarta.

According to Design Milk, Christianto’s commode “Bosen,” the first of his collection “Mari Bermain Rasa” (“Let’s play with feelings”) was “inspired by boredom” and is made mostly with materials that he found during his long walks.

We like how the markings of the original plywood were left untouched, giving the piece an overall graphic feel; the sanded edges make it look more refined too.
