The wood we use comes from Italian and Bolivian
forests, both of which respect the same standards regarding the commerce
of wood, with the guarantee that the lumber is produced so that the forests
can regenerate, according to the criteria of the Forest Stewardship Council.
In 1996 TOTEM was founded as a design studio dedicated to innovative construction systems for wooden furniture. The basic criteria was ease of assembly/disassembly, absence of tools or glue, use of sustainable raw materials and the simplicity of handling the products. All of the products knock down into flat packages so they can be transported and stored easily and to reduce the waste generated by bulky packaging. Since 1997, besides furniture design, TOTEM also began to produce and sell a line of products made from laser-cut E1 plywood.
All of the furniture comes unassembled in a flat pack which includes all of the wooden parts, accessories if any, instructions and a bottle of oil to finish and maintain the surfaces.
All of our products can be easily disassembled for transport and storage without using bulky packing materials. Each kit includes the plywood components, illustrated assembly instructions and the finish.
