Three-legged sawhorse furniture set

I've got the commission to design a wooden furniture set for an architectural studio in Shinjuku (eleventh floor) that could be easily disassemble, light to move around and with the particular feature of a 3m long top desk without middle leg to allow 3 users at a time.
I designed three legged sawhorses to minimise the space taken beneath and added a strong spine to support the combined top. Along with the set I designed a bookshelf and a smaller desk with the same principles.
I also opened a workshop for my client to experience the making herself, the result was a useful and sturdy printer's base cabinet. (lower left of the picture)
- I'll keep up efforts to make clients to get involve with the process of making and create memories through practical work. Very rewarding experience!
