When was the last time you throw out a piece of furniture? Why did you throw it out in the first place; was it broken, or out of style? Abide challenges the conventional ‘throw-away’ habits that grip society.
The Abide stools have been designed in such a way that repair and change feel entirely possible for the user to carry out themselves. Indeed, it was the user who made it in the first instance.
By equipping users with the confidence and know-how to craft, repair, and change their own furniture, we negate the need to throw things away.
Too often, objects and furniture are put together with glue or joints which make repair impossible for amateurs to attempt; it would take even the most adept craftsman a large amount of skill to fix in such a way that a repair is concealed. Gosford, part of the Abide family, revokes such notion.
