The Cane-line rattan collection


The designers have imagined a bare, white room with little furniture in a minimalistic style. Then they moved on to think about how to create furniture that provides warmth and glow and a natural dynamic for the room as a whole. The result is a unique collection of modern natural rattan furniture – like the Sense and Nest sofa, Nest and Curve lounge chairs, Spin and Blend dining chair – and the inspiring accessories, such as Nest footstool, Climb ladder and Sweep basket etc.

The material


Rattan is often confused with bamboo but it differs in that it has a trunk with a core, while bamboo is hollow. This makes rattan a very sturdy material, which can be fashioned into almost all shapes following processing with cooking and oiling.
