On the website, furniture design data is released as "open source", so anyone can download it and process the material with his own hands to complete the furniture. Also, "partner enterprises" who are in charge of processing and assembling materials are spreading all over the world on the basis of the data, and it is also possible to have them substitute for material processing and assembly.

On the site, data such as tables and stools are released, and it is now possible to check products with 3D images.

In addition, assembly manuals can also be obtained with data.

◆ SAWN(Pre-cut material parts)
Based on the above data, cut parts are supplied in the state of raw material. Those tools and materials necessary for assembly and processing are included, and those who remember in the arm can purchase this kit and assemble it.

◆ FLATPACK(Assembly kit)
