Kitchen Gifts: Peg System
Studio Gorm, John Arndt and Wonhee Jeong
Peg System John Arndt and Wonhee Jeong of Eugene, Oregon's Studio Gorm created their ingenious Peg system out of wood components that can be put together to create tables, stools and even lamps. Sold in sets, everything folds up and hangs on a rail when not in use. (A table, two stools and a bench are $2,200.) In the works: a Peg kitchen system for utensils and cutting boards. studiogorm.com.
