Intensified beauty: Ruban coffee table by RKNL Furniture

Amsterdam-based furniture design studio RKNL Furniture – which collaborated with Brooklyn-based manufacturers to bring its collection to the US – announced its new coffee table Ruban. The new table is said to join two cultures: European design and Japanese technique. Constructed of brushed brass and burned oak, Ruban showcases the Shou-sugi-ban method of burning wood, which produces a deep charcoal color and intensifies the grain pattern. Ruban is also available in natural oak or other woods such as American walnut. Ruban’s details include secretly painted interiors.

RKNL Furniture was founded by designer Ronald Knol. The company works with local manufacturers in Europe and the US.
