Craft Combine creates the Patterned Pallet Chair
Published on October 26, 2016
Pallet is a platform for carrying freight easily. Since most used pallets are just disposed or incinerated, we decided to design a chair by using those. Old used pallets have all different histories with having each own cracks and nailed marks.
Craft Combine has focused on history of pallet itself beyond those histories of each used pallet. Pallet was developed in 1800’ and progressed through the Second World War and a beginning of mass production age in the early 1900’. Their pattern study was inspired by Art Deco, one of the main design styles at that moment pallet comes out so that they could design “Patterned Pallet Chair” by using the pattern they studied.

‘Patterned Pallet Chair’ has not only functional role but also decorative one either. Craft Combine designed both of two types by using the basic structure of pallet, stacking woods and also considered enhancing its solidity with interlocked structure.
Pallet is made out of wood, treated in two ways, HT (Heat treatment) and MB (Methyl bromide). What they used for their work was HT type one so it makes the chair harmless to humans.
