CLEAR DESIGN The clear design of Kruk (Kruk – barstool (coloured MDF)) consists of 4 identical legs, kept together by 4 identical pads. Locked together with a uniquely designed clickfinger. The subtle angles ensures stability and gives the bar stool its comfortable ergonomic seat. Kruk fits in the tradition of Fabrikoos where the construction of the designs stays marginally visible. Seen as a whole, it gives Kruk its functional and clear appearance. Simplicity at its best. SMART CONSTRUCTION As all of our designs, Kruk has been CNC produced with a precision of 0,1 mm. The design will be delivered to your doorstep flatpacked with a simple assembly manual. Assembly will only take minutes. MATERIAL Kruk is made out of Valchromat, a sheet of wood made from mostly recycled wood fibres and coloured throughout with organic dyes. Valchromat comes in a variety of different colours to suit your needs. Kruk has been treated with a 100% solvent free (without any Volatile Organic Compounds – VOC) natural monocoat oil. Colour your world!
How Its Made
Fabrikoos is using the newest digital production techniques to make your brand new piece of furniture sustainably without the use of any screws, nails or glue. Digital production techniques like 3D printing and CNC milling are capable of turning a digital design into a physical object instantly. In this way the European manufacturing industry can once more compete with outsourced mass production. There are even predictions of a 4th Industrial Revolution based on digital production techniques. We know the capabilities and the limitations of our own 5m wide CNC milling machine inside out and integrate this knowledge in our designs. Thanks to the 0.1mm precision of our CNC milling machine the furniture can be slotted together and taken apart in no time, with no need for fastenings. This type of assembly results in a clear and functional aesthetic, resulting in a pure product made out of one type of (sheet) material, on one (CNC) machine, with one (digital) file: digital craftsmanship! Due to the production methods pure nature, we aim to use the most sustainable and eco-friendly materials available. Get your furniture piece made in ECOboards, a CO2 negative sheet made out of agricultural residues or go for some color with Valchromat, a recycled wood fibre plate coloured throughout with organic dyes. Last but not least we offer our furniture in bamboo. Bamboo grows 10 times faster than normal wood and by choosing bamboo you therefore protect the vulnerable ecosystems in the forests we have.
