The Tekku series is a collection of beautifully handcrafted accent stools that features two unique, complementing designs.
The Tekku Wood Stools highlight a splatter of crafted brass strips inlaid on cross-sections of teak wood planks, breaking the rhythm of their beautiful concentric lifelines. Paired with its counterpart, the Tekku Brass, these minimalist pieces will offer an aesthetic that is understatedly luxurious and a feeling of warmth and charm.
With an interplay of linear and radial patterns that contrast and harmonise different textural and visual elements the result is a curvilinear balance that is aesthetically pleasing yet functional. Employing a natural palette of wood and brass, the structure has been designed to remain simple and straightforward, leading the focus to the decorative treatment of the seats.
The wood has been polished to a natural matte finish that enhances the richness of the grains, while its warm hue complements and enriches the presence of the brass.
The product borrows its name from the etymological Tamil term for Teak- Tekku. This series has been entirely hand crafted by two different master craftsmen, integrating three distinct craft techniques. Our approach to the materials and forms were artisanal with the design referenced by the pattern of tree rings, the imperfection of time borne fissures and the transcendental concept of time and age.
Celebrating the amalgamation of nature and design, an age-old point of inspiration, the design embodies our philosophy of simplicity, natural materials and an emphasised focus on traditional crafting methods.
Tarkashi or metal inlay is a sophisticated and intricate decorative craft technique of India that is a few centuries old. Keeping the embellishment to a minimum we’ve balanced these details with the beautiful, undulating embossed brass seats complemented by the simplicity of the rounded legs.
Teak wood will darken with age and combined with the glorious gold of the brass these accent pieces will enhance any living space.
