The Niu family was designed as a simple, lightweight line of furniture that ships flat and can be disassembled at the end of its useful life. The three-legged chair, as well as a three person triangular table, are stable regardless of the characteristics of the floor. The tables feature hooks on each corner where a bag or jacket can be placed, making this collection ideal for cafeterias or restaurants in public spaces.


The chair is shipped flat and assembled by the end user, reducing storage and shipping impacts. The assembly is made using metal screws and a wood tool that rotates spiral-shaped wedges that secure the legs in place. The chairs are also stackable, thus adding versatility to the NIU family.
