Tamo Kuri on Anaita dining table by Philippe Hurel
Tamo, also known as Manchurian Ash, comes from Asia and is characterised by a design with an astonishing impression of texture. Toned-down natural elements and in a shade called Kuri (which means chestnut in Japanese), the Tamo veneer gives a unique and poetic character in either satin or gloss to any piece that embraces it.
The Washi lacquer is an exquisite combination of colours and shades. Its profound and unique appearance gives the impression of texture and an ‘paint brushed’ finish. Available in satin or gloss, Washi enhances all surfaces.
Silvio table detail
A truly unique looking wood, Ziricote is reported to be naturally resistant to decay. The highly visual spider web grain is like what can be found in Brazilian Rosewood, only more complex and perfectly suited to high-end furniture.
The Nuage lacquer is an exquisite combination of colours and superpositions of shades, the lacquer has a profond texture which gives an impression of texture and a paint brushed aspect.
Available in satin and gloss, Washi enhances all surfaces.
