2016 - The Made/Found stool was originally developed as a limited production for the Klein Agency awarded bar at the Bienalle Interieur 2016. The stools were limited to 50 pieces. Made from laser cut plate steel and 15mm tube steel, the simple form is designed to complement the roughly detailed tables of the bar.
The Klein Stool was developed as an in-house seating element around the original PRIVATE DINNER CLUB table. Drawing inspiration from japanese joinery, the klein stool finds its strength through the balance of its pieces to the whole.
2011 - The SADL stool is a product of the mutual partnership between machinic precision and human sensibility. Laser-cut. Hand-assembled. 40 centimeters of what the LMBRJK studio has dubbed digital wood. The SADL stool reorganizes sheet plywood through a process of cutting profiles on a laser, to assemble into a functional form for sitting.
The stool is first designed in the computer as a surface model in a 3d CAD software. The model is then sliced vertically to produce nearly 80 separate layers, each of which combines together to form the entire stool. These sections are cut on a laser, organized, spread with glue, hand-assembled, and finally clamped together. This process, from initial conception to final production takes place completely in the LMBRJK studio.
Once completed, the SADL stool is a synthetic wood assembly. Its strength is found in its multi layered structure. Its beauty in its slender curves. Its narrative is a contemporary solution to an age old question of elegance and ergonomics.
2011 - The TRILIP vase series is an investigation and catalogue of organic beauty. Each vessel is distilled from the formal logic of a tulip and an index of functional constraints, such as height, width, performative cavities, perforations, historical vase typologies, etc. The TRILIP vase series pushes the limitations of traditional wooden vase making beyond the lathe and finds new techniques robust in their abilities to produce controlled variation.
Within the catalogue, a base model is put through a series of physical deformations to generate each subsequent model. Each vase made is slightly different from the one before and from any after.
Hundreds of veneer layers form a vase, cut from hardwood and softwood species harvested from Slovenian forests. The layers are tooled using a CAD-based, 80-watt laser cutter, and then assembled by hand in the studio.
Every vase goes through a rigorous process to achieve a hand-worked surface finish.
2013 - Born in LMBRJK's technique of 3D modeling and laser cutting, BEL light shines in its inner beauty. Rich natural materials and curvaceous inner carvings foster the BEL light's ability to create a warm, intimate atmosphere. BEL light is handcrafted out of two african wood species, Padouk and Wenge.
Similar to LMBRJK's other products, BEL light also undergoes an intense handcrafting before all individually laser cut layers come into one smooth piece. Wild on the inside, BEL light stays calm and collected with its outer shape designed to hang perfectly off the ceiling or to be placed on a surface as a sit down mood light.
