In the realm of build-it-yourself furniture, tool-free assembly can seem too good to be true. By riffing on Japanese joinery techniques, open-source furniture brand Opendesk, in collaboration with London-based Danish designer Thor ter Kulve, have created a trestle-style desk that packs flat and requires nothing more than two hands to assemble. Made from birch plywood, the desk is simple in design — putting function (and easy assembly and disassembly) first.
