Ethical wood

A friend sent me a link to this desk set made in Indonesia by designer Singgihh Kartono who is known for his clever use of wood. Made by hand from naturally harvested mahogany and sonokeling wood it has the kind of clean lines that binds decoration and function.

The designer used t-shaped joints for strength and visual appeal while the two different colours of wood offer a lesson in abstract. Reasonably priced either as a set or purchased separately.
