Kiwari is a system which covers the heights of four variant types of furniture by a simple conversion of legs: bench or table height, stool or bar table height.

Kiwari combines two different categories of furniture, four different heights and a multitude of applications, showing a simple style without hiding its functionality.

A hammer makes conversion easy: with a light knock, unfasten four wooden wedges to get out the legs. Then, turn these by 90° and slide them in again. With a knock on the wedges from the other side, the legs are fixed. So in less than two minutes work, the piece of furniture is changed in height.

Produced without bolts or metallic bars to keep an authentic character, this concept is based on ash wood.
