CO-Design: Housefish

I'm forgoing today's Sparks feature to continue with CO-Design coverage, although it's just as inspirational to see what people in your own community are creating. Housefish is a furniture design company located in Denver. For CO-Design, Scott exhibited several of his modular 'Key' storage systems.

Key comes in three different sizes, ships flat and is made with sustainably harvested FSC certified plywood. It also requires no hardware other than the wedge-shaped aluminum tenon keys which hold everything together. There seems to be a trend forming with 'no hardware' furniture - there were several examples at this year's ICFF. I can see why - it offers simple, clean designs that can be easily assembled and re-assembled over the years.
