Modern, sensible, and functional designed furniture are what you can find on the Avida Land and Kubular “Art in Space” two-week exhibit featuring the aesthetics of creative interiors . This is the first collaboration between Avida, proponent of sensible and inspired living, and Kubular, the furniture design firm from the brains behind graphic design-based apparel brand Team Manila. See the newest arts and pieces from Kubular.
Before they uncover the newest from Avida Land and Kubular Art in Space exhibit , a ribbon cutting was done during the media launch.
I am lucky to be one of those who viewed the never-before-seen pieces from Kubular’s newest collection. I also experience and feel the good vibes this wonderfully-made furniture and creative interior releases as you get along with the exhibit. It features the four setups revealed at the opening event: the living room, the entertainment center, the DJ booth and the display area.

This is a Kubular Gill table that can work as a table and shelf. I love furniture that are easy to move (with wheels) because it has an advantage to quickly re-arrange and clean the area.
This Kubular piece is like a classy treasure chest. It is equipped with handles and locks. I was thinking of no matter how heavy the load is, it is easy to move because it is mounted on caster wheels. I really love to have one treasure chest. At my grandparents house, they have an old wooden treasure box same with this size, that until now is still capable of storing valuable items.
Kubular’s furniture designs
Wood and steel are obviously the main parts I noticed on the Kubular furniture. According to Mr. Mon Punzalan, co-founder of Kubular, they channel industrial, Scandinavian feel—straightforward elements like wood and steel bent into cubes and grids to make furniture that are aesthetically and functionally-designed. Durable pieces I love to keep at home. Their credo is to create design that is contemporary, flexible and sustainable, with each piece having the ability to add character to a space.
The “LightStyle Collection” is Kubular’s second collection which features cream-colored Birch wood as primary material as light-colored wood elements. These are essentials to complement our busy surroundings. It gives a more relax mood. The collection focuses on five pieces that I captured during my visit at the exhibit.
Kubular’s Lighstyle Collection
- Stephen, an archival crate-inspired wood and metal plant stand that can work for indoors or outdoors—anywhere you want to give a cozy and inviting feel.
- Alex, a bigger version of the Stephen that allows for a stylish and compact way to store any collection.
- Max, a multi-purpose storage for the home entertainment system—the combination of Birch, dark metal and bright orange casters marries sleek style and function.
- Victor, a minimalist, modern coffee table featuring a smooth rectangular silhouette with the collection’s signature black industrial metal handle and bright orange casters.
- Theo, a wider version of the Stephen fits twice more—it’s a craftly-made piece that can be used to display plants, or sleekly hold books and records.
I loved their idea of having each piece mounted on casters for flexibility and easy movability. These Kubular collections are great to have in our modest homes.
This customized skate deck stool is so awesome! Minimalist, functional, and adds spice to every room.
Avida, on the other hand, aims to give a taste of the unique lifestyle in San Antonio Makati with this collaboration. The residential Makati village features a wealth of hidden gems and rare finds in the form of quaint shops, galleries such as Suez and Zapote where Kubular’s pieces are showcased, and interesting cuisine—all seamlessly integrated into the village’s creative residential community. This village is also the home of Avida Towers Asten and their newest Makati development, One Antonio.
When asked, how they dress up the Avida showroom to suit the dynamic lifestyle of the Avida tower?
Avida Land Marketing Head Tess Tatco emphasized that “Avida and Kubular share the dynamic working millennial demographic—the young, hardworking, creative and culturally-inclined who deserve access to artistically curated and thoughtfully designed living. We want to provide what is essential to their lifestyle—pieces that are of good quality, functional, modern, and sustainable.”
“All the furniture you see here aren’t aspirational—they’re accessible. You can purchase them and take them home to improve your own space after the show. Innovation doesn’t have to be just aspirational. That’s what Kubular and Avida stand for,” adds Mon Punzalan of Kubular.
In the “Art in Space” showroom, I also spotted new new releases from Team Manila and Suez & Zapote, an independent space that features diverse applications of art and design through its main medium, silkscreen printing.
