With an eye toward longevity and durability, local designer David Sears' Cube Collection utilizes a production process which is an energy- and materials-efficient system to elevate plywood to be a high-end material...

From the designer:
The maple, figured maple veneer and plywood used are all FSC-certified. No toxic formaldehyde glues are used. The collection uses 9-ply hardwood-core plywood, a premium version over the typical 3 to 5-ply cabinet grade plywood. Comparably strong to a bulkier solid piece of wood, he has proved that plywood can be a high-end material. The use of this plywood also develops a signature detail in the alternating veneer pattern of the corner box joints and the exposed plywood veneer lines along the edges. The exposed birch and alder hardwood-core veneers along the edges reflect a fine level of detail and enduring design that directly reflect the finesse of Sears' designs.

We love those corner joint details! It's also great to see local designers gaining steam. David Sears' Cube Collection is currently available at EcoModern Design in the Boston Design Center.
