KEIL / furniture


The furniture «Keil» is inspired by the Swiss Mountains with the customs and crafts and stands between tradition and innovation. It uses clever traditional techniques but with these creates new shapes.
The clear and simple shape emphasizes the direct and uncomplicated style of the traditional craft; it also gives the furniture a fresh look.
The furniture is made completely out of native ash wood. The characteristic of the furniture is the developed connection with the wooden wedge. The wedge can be pressed with a handle into the legs of the furniture. In this way the seat is fixed to the legs which provides the required stability.
