Janina Loeve's Tettonica furniture is designed to bring "landscape qualities into the interior".

Consisting of small, lightweight side furniture, Tettonica seeks to create a connection between living space and landscape. Loeve asks "Can we experience the space outside the house while we are inside? The designs are made by scaling different structures of landscapes to fit the interior."

Plate tectonics, the large scale motions of Earth's crust, which shapes canyons and mountains, inspired this series.

Handmade and produced in the Netherlands, the side table and stool are made using layers of Okoumé multiplex, a form of plywood. A series of rings were milled from one board, following lines like contours on a map and then stacked alternately to form the volume.

The depth created inside the table stays visible through the glass tabletop, amplifying the spacious feeling. The stool is hollow from both sides and is covered on top with a removable felt cushion.

Tettonica is currently on display at Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven 22-30 October 2011 in an exhibition called 'Interior Landscapes' at the Schellens-factory, Vestdijk 280 in Eindhoven.
