“One sits down on a desert sand dune, sees nothing, hears nothing. Yet through the silence something throbs, and gleams.” — Antoine de Saint-Exupery
The experience of being surrounded by an infinite sand layer while moving slowly through wind currents, is to experience the passage of time and our brief existence in this wide world. The smooth and warm sensation of layer upon layer of sand -proper of dunes formations- became the cardinal element for this collection.
Duna Collection is a set of wood tables and surfaces inspired by the vast sand dune regions of the world. These formations, full of sinuous fine lines created by the wind, not only show the beauty of a landscape, but also represent the natural passage of time and the constant transformation of our surroundings.
In an effort to bring a warm sensation of layer upon layer of sand to a furniture set, Duna Collection was conceived.
Each piece of this collection is delicately crafted to resemble a serene landscape through its carefully polished table top surface that resembles the effect of the wind and its captivating fluid smooth wood base.
We focused not only on the elegance of the pieces but in the sense of the calm that comes from the vastness of the dense sand fields and its wind-polished formations.
Duna Collection is composed of a set of nest tables, coffee table, bench and sideboard, being ideal for comfortable lounge spaces that seek to add a sense of serenity through a subtle piece of furniture.
