Outofstock Furniture Designs

Outofstock is a design collective, born out of a fortuitous meeting in Stockholm, hence the name Outofstock.

Outofstock Furniture Designs

Gabriel Tan and Wendy Chua from Singapore, Gustavo Maggio from Argentina and Sebastián Alberdi from Spain met at Electrolux Design Lab 2005. They connected, kept in touch, and after a reunion in 2006, decided to collaborate. This collaboration grew into an integrated studio offering interior and product design services and they have not looked back since.

Below are a few results of their talented collaborations.
