New Products Developed with Monmade
Through Green Leap, Temper and Grit introduces a standardized contemporary series of wall cabinets, Woven, sustainably made from bamboo plywood and manufactured by regional partner Eisenwood. The pattern is inspired by the effect of traditional caning processes, abstracted, and CNC cut from the board using an algorithm for efficiency.
Woven is scalable between 3 widths, offering storage and display solutions for a variety of spaces, like kitchens and offices. Maximizing material yield from a 4’x8’ bamboo plywood sheet, the cabinet may be scaled smaller and in different dimensions to fit a variety of spaces while still responsibly utilizing a single sheet of sustainable material.
“Sustainability is integral to my business practice. To decrease material waste, I designed the product considering the maximum output for the board size. The product is also modular and can be adapted to various spaces. And now I’m engaging with regional manufacturing partners to help keep dollars in the local economy and Temper and Grit’s environmental footprint small.”
