Wiref is a modular furniture series designed by Platonics, inspired by the tools and guidelines used in the digital design process. It comprises a bookcase, a drawer and a door mate. All materials are natural and available locally in order to reduce the carbon footprint of the products. All parts are held together by hinges, screws and gravity, and no glue is used. The processes used to manufacture them are eco-friendly. The end product, the packaging and the residues are biodegradable and the wooden parts are compostable. Platonics is an experimental brand that provides locally produced, high quality, elegant and eco-friendly design products for the habitants of the modern metropolis. At the same time it is intended to create a network and synergies amongst local designers, makers, craftsmen and artisans. It draws inspiration from Platos’ realm of ideas, platonic solids and the archetypes we have in our mind and shape our everyday lives.
The Platonics Wire Furniture Family was awarded at the 2016 Young Balkan Designers competition.
