A very fast growing plant. Certain species can grow 90cm in 24 hours. Did you know that bamboo has a higher compressive strength than wood, brick or concrete? We use the splitted bamboo for several decoration items and lampshades.
The teak we use for our furniture is recycled teak. The wood is from old buildings en old wooden houses in Indonesia. The locals receive, besides work to produce wooden furniture, bricks to build new, stronger brick houses. This recycled teak gives an extra dimension to a new piece of furniture, and it’s beautiful of course to give this wood a second life, instead of using it as firewood.
