Our first collection, LEMN, derives its name from the Romanian word for wood, to honor the material's significance and its symbolic representation of growth.
LEMN's cylindrical shape emerged when we were commissioned to design three stools for a modern coffee shop in Manhattan. Our goal was to make a sculptural and contemporary piece that seamlessly fit with the cafe's sleek design. Our formal exploration was inspired by a simple geometric shape: a circle, representing harmony, perfection, and balance.
Crafted from birch plywood, a tree native to New York, the LEMN series showcases handmade furniture that offers a unique alternative to mass-produced designs. The collection consists of four distinct items: the single-legged stool, the double-legged stool, the bench, and the console.
