Have you ever thought about using pallets for…well, more than just carrying heavy loads? I know I have, but that was just after I saw a really nice couch design made from pallets and pillows a few days ago while scouring through some interior and product design sites. I didn’t give it too much thought then, but today I stumbled upon the very interesting work of Martin Leveque from Les M&M designers.
Martin is a product & space designer from Belgium. His designs are charaterized by estetic simplicity while his approach towards the design projects he is involved in also takes the environmental and social aspects of a product into consideration.
Designed and built for the book “100% déco Palettes, faites vos meubles” (or “100% Pallet, from freight to furniture”) the five items are part of a 21 DIY design projects and were created having the do-it-yourself and recycling concepts in mind. According to the designers, the furniture items should be farily easy to build, so you don’t have to be a very skillful carpenter to assemble them yourself as long as you have the building instructions at hand.
