Soba Collection by Stefan Diez
Edition
Craft
under the patronage of
Alexander Zaxarov
Aug 12, 2020

Developed as part of Japan Creative’s initiative to revive traditional Japanese craft and fabrication methods within a contemporary context, Soba designed by Stefan Diez explores and experiments with bamboo in its natural state.

Created in collaboration with a bamboo fabricator on Kochi island, the pieces are made from raw bamboo canes, using thin cords to brace the individual parts and hold them together. This allows for a quick and easy assembly (and disassembly) of the individual pieces.

Comprised of a trestle and bench in various lengths, Stefan Diez has conceived ‘Soba’ as an almost flat-packed furniture collection, which makes it possible to sell the design online. The pieces are made primarily of bamboo wood, whose components are fastened together using kevlar rope, cleverly put together and tightened by hand to ensure stability.
