The rapid economic growth of China has caused shortage of land in the city; therefore, many old low-rise buildings are being demolished. Some businessmen take this opportunity to collect these vintage materials: from beams, columns, furniture, doors to equipment for husbandry and live stock farming, like water pails, small boats, pig’s trough...etc. We take the liberty to utilize these ordinary vintage materials to create extraordinary contemporary furniture.
Elm wood is an essential timber in house construction and carpentry, because of its toughness, versatility, and rustic nature. These characteristics coincide with Keith Lau's design concepts that produce the effects he desires.
Battered old front doors have endured severe weather over 50 years; the erosion throughout the years has brought out the natural beauty of the grains that cannot be duplicated by human hands. It is this nostalgic quality of the wood that makes our furniture charming and charismatic.
Camphor wood is another essential timber in construction and carpentry. Its unique aroma and its large tree trunk make it suitable for manufacturing one-piece furniture. We have a series of distinctive designed furniture that embraces these characteristics.
