BAMBOO DINING TABLE
‘BAMBOO REVOLUTION’: NATURE vs TECHNOLOGY
The tabletop: our skilled craftsman precision cuts solid 30mm bamboo board into a perfect circle and rebate a recess underneath for easy positioning of the tabletop to the base.
We then sand the surface to an ultra smooth, tactile finish before hand-rubbing the bamboo with premium timber oil. The result is a natural but durable finish. We prefer a finish that protects the surface without giving it an obvious coating, hence our choice of oils.
A perfect marriage of materials: The round bamboo tabletop is matched with a four leg steel base selected for its minimalism and contrast with the natural bamboo. For the steel base, we offer a wide range of powder coated colours, thereby both durability and aesthetics.
BAMBOO: TRULY SUSTAINABLE & RENEWABLE FURNITURE
If there’s one visionary furniture material of the future, it has to be bamboo, given the numerous upsides it offers. The species we use — Phyllostachys pubescens — has numerous noteworthy attributes:
Good for our Earth — extremely efficient at absorbing and storing carbon, bamboo acts as a locked-in carbon sink at a rate up to three times that of trees, even once harvested.
…and your health — being new to the market, our local producers manufacture bamboo plywood to modern standards, including emphasis on low VOC emissions. Also important for an eating surface: bamboo naturally inhibits bacterial growth.
Renewability — this bamboo species grows incredibly fast — up to 1 meter per day — making it genuinely sustainable and renewable. Unlike timber from trees, bamboo doesn’t require replanting after harvesting; the root system stays in place and produces new growth each season.
Good design — carefully choosing the objects you live with means you’ll be less likely to replace them, thereby avoiding the current mass consumer culture. Buy a product with high appeal and it won’t become another disposable commodity when no longer ‘on trend’.
DurabilityGood design also entails durability. Our bamboo products rate highly on density scales, meaning it’s on par with high density hardwood timber.
MORE THAN FASHION
Sustainability shouldn’t just be a marketing buzzword. For a product to be truly sustainable, it needs to have lasting appeal. In an age of planned obsolescence, where the emphasis is on ‘fast fashion’, making a long term commitment is a much more conscientious approach.
THE NEW BAMBOO
Say ‘bamboo’ and most people will think of that gauche wicker stuff. Modern bamboo ply is anything but. Its beauty and finishing capabilities put it more in the league of quality timber furniture. These qualities have made it the choice material for many acclaimed furniture designers. Its relative current scarcity also makes it something a little more distinctive than standard timber.
