ARTLESS SQG pieces were originally conceived for a government building in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The demands were beauty, maintenance, durability, and cost. The criteria was to push the pieces towards the simplest of form while achieving a “double function single meaning." All the pieces in the SQG line go beyond their intended purpose and offer simple yet unconventional storage solutions. The SQG line is the precursor of ARTLESS' "indestructible" approach. ARTLESS started using 2" solid woods as a solution for furniture that was aesthetically pleasing not only to the eye but also to the hand, while being nearly indestructible under everyday use. ARTLESS solid woods are hand-finished with an environmentally friendly, natural oil rub, which allows the pieces to age gracefully, requiring minimum maintenance and care.
