By Hand

It is in making things, that we become emotionally attached to them. Our own individual touch, and a slice of our precious time add value. Yet, many of us lack the skills to craft our own furniture. That is why Friso Wiersma created ‘By Hand’, a flatpack series including a stool, bench, cabinet and nightstand that anyone can create. Pre-cut joins mean it can all be done without so much as a nail or screw. The forms and colours are inspired by American Shaker design. Brush with traditional milk-based paint and there it is: a functional, finished piece handmade by you!
