NOM - Nature of Material is a series of stackable and light-weight furniture: each item is built from a single spread of laser cut aluminum sheet metal, which is then bent to its  final shape.

The first item in the series is a three-legged stool, first developed during the studies of Kuchik and Amitai in the Faculty of Industrial Design at Bezalel. At first site, the items in the series appear to be simple and unpretentious. In reality, the products were reached after a long process of analysis, experiment and reinforcement, and conceptualization, both material and practical, allowing the two to form a perfect and successful product. The final result turned out to be particularly stable in consideration of the ultra-thin material in relation to the origami-like form that characterizes it.

Studio Bakery was founded in 2009 by Gil Kuthik (b.1983) and Ran Amitai (b.1980), graduates of the Faculty of Industrial Design at Bezalal. During their first collaborative project, the two developed the series of furniture called NOM. The prototype for the series was first shown at the Milano Design Week in 2010, where the rights to production were bought by the Italian company Capillini . The series went into production in 2012 and, to this day, it is part of the company's catalogue. In 2014 the series was awarded the Best of the Best prize in the category of furniture in the prestigious design competition "Red Dot."
