Months ago at Hall D of AsiaPOP Comic Con, Disney revealed its collaboration with Filipino industrial designer Kenneth Cobonpue, for a collection of official Star Wars-themed furniture. Pieces from the collection were shown to the audience, but since kept under wraps. (All who entered Hall D were asked to deposit their phones and cameras, to protect Disney's exclusive reveals).

Today, following a series of teasers on Facebook, Cobonopue finally unveils the full collection, comprised of five different pieces. Check it out:

CHEWIE ROCKING STOOL

These pieces were designed in official collaboration with Disney. At the AsiaPOP reveal, Cobonpue was keen to discuss the process, noting that he didn't set out to recreate what he saw in Star Wars. Instead, he wanted to take inspiration from the franchise. This meant taking familiar elements from the original trilogy and infusing them into his own design language.

This is evident in the pieces themselves, which still bear a very natural geometry about them—something you'd see in all of Cobonpue's designs.

There's no word yet on availability and pricing, but expect updates as we receive them.
