Outline

Lukis armchair is an encounter between centuries-old tradition of rattan processing and contemporary design. A new perspective on the handicraft culture from Southeast Asia that is showing signs of a renewed environmental awareness. As a matter of fact rattan can be harvested in a sustainable manner due to its rapid growth, all its parts can be utilized and the steam-bending process makes production environmentally friendly. The outcome is a furniture made with strong stems woven together with such accuracy and attention to details that makes you think of a high-technology industrial product.

Evaluation

A handcrafted rattan armchair. The Cappellini design makes the most of rattan's qualities and its high craftsmanship, creating a chair with a unique and exotic atmosphere not seen in other materials. The innovation to secure strength in the junction points is superb. The armchair is also comfortable to sit on, as it makes use of the tension of rattan.
