Knock-Down/Drag-Out Furniture

With the clever name of this line of collapsible furniture, Christopher Douglas tells you exactly how these pieces should be used: break them down into flat storage for the day to day, and haul them out when the company arrives.

The dining table’s construction is a tab-and-slot design that’s as clever visually as it is functionally. The equally dynamic Flipper screen becomes a shelving unit when its cut-out circles are locked into a horizontal position.

Douglas, who is based in Portland, Oregon, and makes his furniture-building debut at ICFF, works with birch plywood, a material that perfectly suits the sophisticated utilitarianism of his designs.
