„Jabloka“ – the style of mid-century

Mid-Century design spanned from about 1933 to 1965 and included architecture as well as industrial, interior, and graphic design. Designers such as Charles and Ray Eames, Arne Jacobsen, and George Nelson created iconic furniture and lighting that are still highly desired. This unique design trend influences still today’s designers. Furniture, accessories and interior concepts that pick-up design ideas of this movement are very fashionable also this season.

Treating wood with fire, alienates the look of the wood and therefore creates a transformation into a black fractured surface. This look inspired us to create our new décor “Aiko”. “Aiko” captivates in noble black with a design structure reminiscent of burned wood, but it is not a copy of nature, thus it generates a completely… read more
