Haute Bamboo Series

While bamboo is among our fastest renewable resources, itʼs often considered a poor man's timber. With this series, we wanted to re-examine the aesthetics of bamboo furniture. The curves of 'Bambusa Ventricosa' are caused by a rare mutation in the bamboo producing strikingly bulbous stalks. The bulging forms give personality to each piece which will always be different due to the randomness of each stalk. A coating of glossy black linseed-oil paint references eastern lacquered furniture, binding the origin of the material with its outcome. All products are hand made.
