Creativity and mathematical precision are united by designer Alain van Havre in an unprecedented composition which centers around a singular archaic shape. A triangle forms the basis of all patterns and it is placed and replicated to create something truly visually enticing. By using multiple layers, a sense of depth and dynamism is created in the intricate arrangement. Motion and warmth are added by further perfecting the natural attributes of wood. Combining these distinct and contrasting characteristics in an unconventional design that disconnects from the familiar and creates a unique and fascinating centerpiece. The Graphic sideboard is made of Teak and has a black varnish.
Alain van Havre is Ethnicraft’s in-house designer. The complexity of things has always intrigued him, which led him to study product development at the Design Academy of Eindhoven, The Netherlands. To him, all design embodies the same duality: the aim is to create a timeless product, yet with a hint to the specific moment in which it is made.
