Facundo Poj Design


facundo: adj.
eloquent, articulate, having a fluent manner of speaking; expressive!

That certainly describes this find!

I love the flowing lines which feels like each piece is alive and the pieces are made from bamboo. The artist writes:
I choose Plyboo as my medium because it is manufactured in large enough sheets, it is strong, durable, sexy looking and non toxic. Bamboo is also a fast growing grass and this helps prevent forest depletion. I do not use nails or screws. All layers are glued with a non-toxic glue, threaded together with oak dowels and clamp pressed. The result is structurally solid and soft at the same time.

His pieces are all limited editions or unique. He mostly exhibits them exclusively at Avant Gallery in Miami's Design District.
