In the Hand Made edition of Wallpaper* Kebony revealed its most recent project, an exquisitely crafted clothes horse. For the third year in a row we worked with Wallpaper* to secure a commission for Kebony to be exhibited at their annual Handmade show, Salone del Mobile in Milan. The stylish piece is comprised of intersecting slats with the cross-section forming the shape of a star, the organic appearance of Kebony’s Radiata perfectly complements the subtle beauty of the piece, an artistic re-imagining of an everyday item of furniture.
The sustainable wood from award-winning Kebony has most frequently featured in high profile architectural and construction projects and the material is renowned for its performance and durability. However this recent foray into the world of design is not a first for the cleantech pioneer, whose previous exhibits, exclusive to the Wallpaper* Handmade exhibition, have included a luxury coffee bar and a Nordic-style dog kennel.
Designed by talented young London-based designer Aaron Dunkerton the aim of the project was to create a beautiful luxury sculpture for the home, which was also practical. Recently graduating from Kingston University with a degree in product and furniture design a collaboration with Wallpaper* and Kebony was the ideal opportunity for Dunkerton to showcase one of his first initiatives.
