by David Trubridge
Taniko was designed by David Trubridge and developed by Philippe Bajard, an intern student from ENSCI design school in Paris, France. Inspired by traditional patterns in Maori weaving for cloaks and clothing which are called taniko. The shapes are designed so that their layout on a sheet of plywood fits perfectly, and the only waste being the sawdust from the cutter. Taniko uses only plantation grown timber, and the minimum amount of material for the maximum effect.
