Embrace by John Green for Offi
Multifunctional and practical, the Embrace storage unit is a modern take on the iconic Isokon Penguin Donkey.
Designed to store modern media such as DVDs, CDs, books and magazines, this smart piece of furniture is perfect for the classroom. Embrace is made from bent plywood and is composed of two low interlocking tables that slot together to form a storage unit/magazine rack or occasional table. The pieces can also be pulled apart to create two small tables, a laptop table, a serving tray or a bench and desk for kids.
Embrace is made in the Baltic region of Europe where all the timber used is sustainably felled at source, keeping the carbon footprint of the product to a bare minimum. Embrace is made from bent plywood and available in Birch, Oak and Walnut finishes.
