The MP&S (Marine Plywood & Sails) complete collection consists of seven items: two stools, three chairs, and two easy chairs. They all consist of a plywood frame that supports the fabrics manufactured from cutting up recovered sails from ships. The two materials used are particularly suitable for outdoor use.
The items of the collection have been inspired by traditional folding outdoor and beach furniture in a reinterpretation of common pieces of furniture. The plastic language of the collection is strongly defined by the characteristic construction of the folding structures and the special way of achieving a folding hinge. The intensive folding and piling up of the items means that they can be collected and stored in a small space.
The wooden parts are constructed based on marine boards that are traditionally used in ship construction. The material used is birch plywood glued with phenolic resins that are broken up in a milling plotter by a numerical control which allows the material to be used to the full. The fabrics are sewn by hand as from the cutting up of the most expressive areas of the sails, which means that each piece is unique; the pieces are labeled one by one with the details of the origin of the sail
