The just-launched Campaign is focused on improving the inefficient and costly furniture industry.

Envisioned for millennials who move often, the pieces ship in separate boxes that come with handles so it's easy to transport them from one apartment to the next. When they arrive, assembly takes mere minutes and doesn't require any tools.
