Furniture On Demand In London

Unto this Last is a unique store and furniture workshop in London. Besides being a showroom for their premade work, they can manufacture custom pieces within a week at mass production prices. A computer controlled fabricator will cut out the needed shapes and it’s all assembled on the spot. The whole process is on view for customers to see, and apparently it’s quite enthralling.

Ponoko reports:

“The beauty is the production is entirely visible from the shop – I stood watching for a while captured by that peculiarly mesmerising quality that all computer controlled fabricators seem to have over onlookers! The router head whizzed and whirred back and forth, churning out another set of mysterious shapes from an eight by four bit of ply.”
