Designing concept of Popsitable

I believe many of us share the similar childhood memory :

In a leisurely afternoon, no matter what flavor of the popsicle I took out from the freezer in the grocery store, the sweetness of my heart slowly flowed in the memory, always looking forward to finish that popsicle, hoping to see “Get one more for free” words written on the stick in Taiwan.

This carries out a unique temperature within people.

The designer cleverly transformed popsicle bamboo sticks, a small object that has deep memory for adults and children, into simple and elegant design. Creating a golden ratio exclusive to the Popsitable with Carbonized Bamboo Wood. Every detail is the result of the constantly pulling between imagining and the reality.

▲ Therefore we took the shape of the popsicle sticks, taking its shape, transform into rounded the R angle and refreshing straight lines to present the various parts of the table and chair. The most outstanding part of Popsitable is its legs.

▲ The surface is like a large version of the front of a popsicle stick. The n-shaped support the structure and the articulated structure design under the desktop. Simple but solid in space.

▲ What is Carbonized Bamboo Wood ?

Is it Bamboo? Or Wood?

It is the revolution of “Bamboo”, a material seems to be traditional, somehow it is the result of High-Tech Material studies for more than ten years.

Our Material is taken from the raw bamboo, crushing into threads, followed by Carbonization with High temperature and pressure in order to process anti-rot and anti-pest. Finally, after soaking in green adhesive and hot pressing, here comes our Carbonized Bamboo Wood.

Carbonized bamboo, crushed bamboo texture can be seen on the surface.

High density texture also can be noticed on the section. For SGS related tests, It was confirmed that the density was above 1.00 and the formaldehyde was within 0.05%.

FSC certification for sustainable production.
