The diversion line makes modern, one-of-a-kind furniture by working with construction waste. Using basic building materials from new construction, renovations and demolitions, the diversion line is made of scraps of almost any planar waste between ¾” and 1 ½” thick. After being machined into shapes, each piece is then surfaced, sealed and bored for connection through simple hardware: threaded rods, nuts and spacers.

This product is available delivered as shown or as DIY kits, which makes the shipping more affordable and the environmental footprint much smaller. For architects, designers, contractors or developers, this product qualifies for LEED 2009 credits.

The diversion line was started in January of 2010 by Knock Architecture and Design. To purchase the diversion line furniture or kits see the Product Delivery area below on the right.

diversion line 00 renderings

The diversion line 00 series takes a variety of building materials and melds them into a colorful and playful palette. Each piece features reclaimed materials from your most recent construction project, renovation or demolition: CDX or OSB plywood from sheathing, MDF from cabinetry, granite or stone from countertops and wood from solid core doors. This line diverts these materials from landfill waste and forms them into clean-lined benches, stools and side tables. The curve featured in the top of the benches is done by machine at your local shop or by hand at home or on site.
