The ge­nius of col­lab­o­ra­tive thought is that it births in­no­va­tive pieces such as the Mer­aki daybed. The Amer­i­can Hard­wood Ex­port Coun­cil’s project, Seed to Seat, tasked seven prom­i­nent South African de­sign­ers with cre­at­ing ‘some­thing to sit on’. Cape Town­based de­sign stu­dio Wiid De­sign used sus­tain­able cork and Amer­i­can soft maple to cre­ate a dreamy yet prac­ti­cal daybed that merges mod­ern geo­met­ric shapes with in­tri­cate, age-old carv­ing tech­niques. If you missed the grand un­veil­ing at 100% De­sign South Africa at the be­gin­ning of Au­gust, the Mer­aki is also avail­able di­rectly from its cre­ator.
