Digital Wood Joints Wood Joints are fascinating! They embellish old furniture and wood constructions of ancient Japanese temples alike. Everytime we come across them, we are filled with admiration: Admiration for the skill of the master craftsman, as their creator, but also admiration for the balance between function and beauty, which turns the furniture or temple into a work of art. With the onset of industrialisation, the traditional wood joints have been banned more and more to the background. Manufacturing has to be above all efficient, so there is no more room for traditional wood joints.

736 × 549 - 438 × 329 - 1200 × 898 - 400 × 280 - 400 × 400 - CNC Panel Joinery Notebook I’ve been collecting clever ways of slotting flat stock together since I first read Nomadic Furniture back in 1999, well before the advent of the accessible hobby-class CNC tools that, today, make manufacturing parts like these pretty easy.

So far, I haven’t found it. I may have missed it. create plus think design studio terraces atolan house in taiwan jan 21, 2017 create + think design studio terraces atolan house in taiwan located on the eastern side of taiwan, the atolan house by taipei-based create + think design studio sits at the border of the pacific ocean and borrows traditional native architecture. the word a’tolan derives from the indigenous language of natives on the east coast of taiwan, meaning ‘a place with many rocks’ or ‘ piling of rocks’.

This suggests that the eco-minded homeowner or office dweller should go out and buy some plants – but which ones? With all the hype of “going green”, every plant on the market is being promoted as an air purifier! But not to worry – NASA has conducted an official study on the top 10 air purifying plants, assigning each one a score based on how well they remove chemical vapors, resist insects, and how easy they are to maintain for your home or green office space.
