Wood is a material with a visible memory. It tells a story in shape of a tree, beam or furniture. With project I-Joist Steven Banken continuous the story of the material. The beam with I-profile combines pure beauty with strength. These numbered Oak wooden elements begin as part of a cabinet. Solid beams function as drawers, which roll in the length on brass wheels.

Family, houses or aesthetics are in constant movement and changes. The rejection of used furniture is a part of this movement. Nothing has an ultimate destination. The owner of the cabinet can contact manufacturer “I-Joist” for the return service. I-Joist gives the joists a new life as high quality construction material. Every joist is registered with a serial number, which tracks down information on age, place and size.
