Puzzle-Piece Furniture Made Out of a Single Sheet of Plywood
Ken Landauer’s zero-waste designs use 94 to100 percent of each sheet of plywood
Artist and woodworker Ken Landauer was inspired to start his own furniture line by the ingenuity he encountered during Occupy Wall Street. Before that, he was making one-off, bespoke pieces for clients who could afford the high price tags, but his experiences in 2011 led him to pursue a different goal: making high-quality, low-waste furniture that anyone could afford. Landauer translated Occupy’s rallying cry for the 99 percent into a no-waste design ethos. Each of his designs is made out of a single sheet of plywood and is designed to use a minimum of 94 percent of each sheet.
