A desk for two, designed to be assembled out of the box with no screws or glue.

This version required metal runners for the drawers, but subsequent versions are true to the cause with all-wood runners, thus requiring no additional parts for assembly. 

One of the goals of this purity is to reduce waste, partly by enabling a longer life cycle, partly by simplyfying end-of-life repurposing and recycling. Small screws, runners and connecting systems can be lost or damaged over time and typically become irreplaceable as the industry moves on, but it’s easy enough to shape wood into shape. 

The use of dry joints has several benefits despite a potentially more complex assembly process. Dry joints typically result in a cleaner, more streamlined appearance as there are no visible screws or nails, and they also make it easier to disassemble and reuse the components in the future. Additionally, in some cases, the use of dry joints can lead to a more rigid and stable structure, as they are designed to distribute load more evenly.
