The sun is out and it’s time to head outside at last. Taking inspiration from the great outdoors, we have created a selection of beautiful designs all made in natural materials.
Bring the outdoors in with the recycled wood collection of tables by Piet Hein Eek. The Waste and Canteen Table are meticulously crafted in his studio using classic wood-working techniques. His instantly recognisable design language creates products of vibrancy and grace.
For natural beauty, look no further than the designs of Fort Standard. They utilise a range of materials in their work, including American walnut and oak, fine bone china and metal alloys such as brass. Often using traditional methods of production in innovative ways, they have developed a unique design language rooted in simplicity and functionality.
Designer, Reiko Kaneko, has created an elegant modern range of vessels in a classic material. Tiny variations in form, and the evidence of being made by hand, give these designs an idiosyncratic beauty all their own.

The Ishinomaki stool has been specially designed at their furniture-making workshop for locals and primary school students in collaboration with Herman Miller.

Designed for both indoor and outdoor use, the Ishinomaki stool represents perfectly the Compact Outdoors concept of Ishinomaki Laboratory.
