We recently received four amazing looking furniture projects from London-based designer Kenyon Yeh. Here is a description from the official press release: “Seeking to create personal identity out of ubiquitous uniformity, Kenyon took standard Ikea flat-pack furniture and assembled the pieces as he wanted, adding some new details along the way. One of the new elements incorporated into the designs is an old detailed English chair leg which Kenyon re-cast in resin; cleverly adding a traditional craftsmanship into a unique whole made up of mass-produced pieces. The result is whimsical, yet attractive, and serves to function, beyond its practical use, as a comment on mass-production and mass-consumption. This collection was exhibited at London Design Festival 2010, Designers Block Show.

- LOPA, which may be used as a bookstand, features four legs which have been colored in black. The structure is a single piece and is divided into three segments that are interconnected.
- KENN features three major quadrilateral shapes and a triangular niche created by the intersection of the three 4-sided parts of this piece. Two red feet support one end, while the other side rests on the angled corner of the rightmost rhomboid.
- DALT, The bookrack is a two pieces structure featuring geometric shapes. The rack has two legs of contrasting green color installed on one side, while the other side is balanced with the help of a secondary structure.
- BRIA is a double rhombus-like structure, which has been interconnected in a way that appears as though one of the rhombuses is being derived out of the other. It has four legs, which have been give a contrasting blue colour. Ideal for stacks of books, BRIA is a unique take on the common bookcase.”
