KARPENTER is a company based in Indonesia and Italy, which believes in making furniture with a holistic and eco friendly approach.Talking about their philosophy they explain, “For the sake of the future generations, we take responsibility for the environment. We hold a certification from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). We also take measures to minimise our negative impact on the environment in all stages of our operations because we know that Earth is our only home.”
All consumption including furniture making, has an impact on the environment. As an internationally recognised brand, Karpenter is committed to developing concepts and technologies that contribute to the sustainable management of the environment worldwide.
Time adds character and charm to wood, which again builds relations between people and their furniture. These are the characteristics of furniture that are passed down through generations. Wood can be renewed for centuries. If necessary with time, professional refinishing can uncover new layers of beautiful wooden surfaces to make the furniture look like new.
Although Karpenter furniture is made to last, it is important to consider that old wood and metal can be recycled and made into new furniture, toys and other objects beyond our imagination. Finally, wood is naturally degradable and organically returns to nature.
KARPENTER believes natural beauty is perfect and timeless. Combined with the human touch and creativity, KARPENTER exists to bring natural materials to adorn the rooms where you live and grow. The furniture is born from a dialogue between creative designers and technical craftspeople.
Ideas from creative designers are translated into craft techniques. Behind that human process, there is always the nature of the material they work with, which ultimately creates the final pieces. That is why KARPENTER says: “Designed by us, defined by nature.”
The passion of KARPENTER design is playful yet classic and timeless. Inspired from nature, life, and modern art; from the fine lines of Scandinavian minimalism, through French and Italian culture and tradition, to the simplicity of Japanese aesthetics, KARPENTER products play with metal, leather and fabrics.
A close attention to detail enhances the fine lines and curves. At the heart of KARPENTER design philosophy, flawless proportion is valued to make an equal emphasis on aesthetics and comfort. KARPENTER allows nature to define their product.
Every piece of wood has a unique and natural fingerprint that eventually shapes the character of each product. KARPENTER also believes that the carpenters and craftsmen are heroes, who value wood as a noble material and treat it with greatest respect.
Earth is our only home. All consumption, including furniture making, has an impact on the environment. KARPENTER endeavours to create the lowest possible impact on the environment. As one of their commitments, they possess a timber legality verification and FSC certification for reclaimed wood.
All KARPENTER products are made from environmentally sustainable materials, techniques and technologies. Classy timeless design of superior quality is the USP of this company. For true lovers of natural beauty, Karpenter’s ‘Signature’ range allows noble materials to take centre stage.
This line is guided by the principle that furniture should be enjoyed for generations. Sleek, warm and up-to-date, the Twist collection serves up a clever mix of Scandinavian middle century influences and contemporary Japanese Zen minimalist furniture.
Twist will definitely delight the city-resider and urban lovers of contemporary furniture. Its clean-cut curves and well-designed proportions add a sense of simplicity to hectic lives and expresses an opinion of living a cheerful and peaceful life. It is available in reclaimed teak wood, American black walnut and European white oak.
