Hole chair
23/03/2016 [netherlands] [diningroom] [permalink]

Surprise is one of the key elements that make people stop, turn their head and have a closer look. The legs of the HOLE chair have this effect on people. The faceted legs pierce though the seat of the chair, melting the frame and seat together and leaving a mark.
The HOLE chair was introduced for the first time in Paris during Maison et Oject and in Stockholm during the Stockholm Furniture Fair.
The HOLE chairs legs are made of Europian Oak, known for it s strenght and durability. A well built chair will last a lifetime, that is Marc’s goal. 100% wool from Denmark is used for the upholstery, giving the chair a warm and rich finish.

BoBo – Side Table by RKNL
24/12/2015 [netherlands] [livingroom] [permalink]

The design for this unconventional side table was inspired by the African Baobab tree. This tree with its wide trunk and fragile branches defies all laws of correct proportions, which makes it one of a kind in nature.

The BoBo is expressing the same. Perky and unique. As a side table it sure is handy, offering three plateaus for a cup, mobile phone, iPad, remote control or even an old school book...

There are two standard versions of the BoBo: burned oak with brushed brass and solid oak with white steel. The black version is colored using the Shou-sugi-ban technique, an ancient Japanese technique in which wood is burned to form a natural protection. This traditional torching method generates a much richer color than a standard stain and deepens the grain of the oak. After burning and brushing, the side table is lacquered to prevent the release of charcoal.

The BoBo is made by real craftsmen, as are all designs by RKNL. No mass production but production with attention to detail. The center piece is made of solid oak and has an honest, natural look. As a result of the use of solid oak, each piece is different and has its own character.

The inner tub is made of a fibreglass reinforced polyester/marble composite. To produce it, House of Thol closely collaborates with a manufacturer that has years of experience working with similar materials in the boating industry. The frame is made of American white oak, bended, shaped and assembled by hand in the workshop in Zandvoort.

Porcelain Jug by Aldo Bakker
08/06/2014 [netherlands] [others] [permalink]

Porcelain Jug part of the Jug + Cup tableware collection by Aldo Bakker for Particles. Because of the performance that the Jug suggests, it never looks lost when it stands unused. For it even performs as it waits to carry out its function: pouring. To use it you turn it upside down so that the big opening points upwards and fill it with water. When full, the Jug balances on the table; when empty, you can turn it upside down again (to cover the cup)
