Bring a natural touch inside your home

The decorative Emiko tables are a piece of natural art. The beautiful Emiko tables are processed by hand all the way through. Each piece has a different shape and small variations in sizes due to the natural shape of each trunk it is cut from. The skilled workers are taking special care of protecting the outer shape of the tree trunk.
 
We like the raw look of the tables, which at the same time has a very elegant and rich expression with the golden details. Besides these beautiful side tables, the Emiko collection consists of a rustic designed shelf, made of sustainable mango wood, beautiful classic handmade stools, expressive cabinets and a gorgeous handmade dinner table. 

 

Sustainable, dark and raw

Sustainable interior design and the use of sustainable materials are here to stay. The table plate of the Emiko side tables is a vertical cut piece of an Acacia wood trunk. Acacia is a sustainable species as it is fast growing. Once one tree is cut another can be planted and will grow rapidly. It is a strong and heavy species, very suitable for furniture. 
 
Dark is a trend at present, ranging from design to graphics, from interior to furniture. After years of total white, dark colours have now been rediscovered and appreciated again. The dark tones give a gorgeous depth in the interior design.
Wood is a great material to use in the interior design because it adds a beautiful texture. Combined with the right lighting, wood creates spacious, warm and comfortable rooms. 
 
Finishes are natural and raw, reflecting a desire for going back to the essential. Product design trend goes towards imperfection, tactile and handmade qualities. Handmade products are more and more loved because of their uniqueness and imperfection. 
These Emiko side tables combine all that.

Golden details

The table plate is poured with molten metal, which covers the cavity or crack of the wood. The method is inspired by the Japanese form of art "Kint Sugi", which means "repairing a crack with gold". This method has been used to repair breakage and make it even more beautiful than before on an item. 
 
Kintsugi is not only a technique, but also a philosophy, and it features many similarities with the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, which is an embrace of the flawed and imperfect. The use of kintsugi emphasizes cracks and repairs as a statement in the piece’s life story, rather than allowing the damage to cause the end of the piece.
 
Kintsugi can be related to the Japanese philosophy of “no mind”, which is an expression for the acceptance of a piece’s transformation and destiny. The kintsugi technique does not attempt to conceal the damage to the piece, but rather to highlight it and make it a physical manifestation of the “no mind” philosophy. Through the use of kintsugi, a rebirth of the piece takes place.
