Artek 10-Unit System
Shigeru Ban, 2009
The 10-Unit System is a novel furniture concept and fully modular system. Based on L-shaped units that can be combined to form furniture – a chair, a stool, a bench – the system allows for the creation of multiple configurations and is easy to disassemble and reassemble. An ingenious yet simple design, the 10-Unit System displays designer Shigeru Ban’s commitment to the environment. Made from UPM ProFi, a non-toxic wood plastic composite, the principal raw materials are recycled paper and plastic. Tough and humidity resistant, the composite is environmentally sustainable and can be recycled back into the production process.
