Tunnel is a minimalist cabinet designed by Eindhoven-based studio OS ∆ OOS. Traditional meets high tech; the tried and true sawhorse is a strong, sturdy and beautifully simple design. The designers have translated this traditional design to a stool that not only is constructed without any physical fasteners or glue but each element is a direct supporting element, resulting in a true form = function design.
Seeing materials today exhibiting more and more characteristics into one material. The advances in materials also are reflected by the manufacturing process and in this case the ability to rapidly precision cut round extruded tubes that interlock within each other. It’s mainly due to these adaptive processes that allows for traditional construction to be applied to new materials to gain even more advantages; weight and ease of construction would be a main features.
