We recently heard of Facundo Poj, a Miami-based designer, and were taken in by his beautiful bamboo and reclaimed furniture collection. Poj uses unconventional materials — salvaged cardboard, engineered bamboo, and reclaimed items like tubs and doors — together with non-toxic glues and oak dowels to create handcrafted furniture that is strong, sophisticated, and earth-friendly.
We love his theory of design: Poj spends much of his time looking for treasures in junk yards. He searches for objects with a soul and a lasting quality to them...he values the biography of objects and materials.
Aztec Stool and Wine Rack
Made of 23 layers of engineered bamboo ply with oak dowels

Ofidio Dining Table

Biblos Book Table

Although his Re-Incarnated Collection is creative and cool (not to mention that his Tub Chair (above) seems to be an eco-friendly play on the Saarinen Tulip Chair), his Bamboo Collection definitely take the cake.
