Cable by Anthony Hartley. Furniture designer and maker.

Anthony Hartley is a designer / maker of furniture with an eye for innovation and detail. The family of furniture featured here is known as “Cable”. The name comes from the cable ties that are used to stitch the components of each piece together.

Using cable ties in this way means that the furniture items can be shipped flat-packed and can be easily assembled into a rigid furniture piece by practically anybody. You do not need for tools, or for that matter, DIY knowledge! The furniture can be disassembled just as easily, and for people that are easily bored, components can be swapped around to create new colour combinations.

I will do another post on some interesting work from Anthony Hartley in the near future.
