The Hinoki dining set embodies the Falecki mantra of minimalism. It comprises of two three seat benches and one eight seat table.
The Whole Story
The Hinoki dining set comprises of two three seat benches and one eight seat table. The set is manufactured in Australia using Australian grown Cypress pine which has similar characteristics to Japanese Hinoki pine. The name 'Hinoki' is in reference to the Japanese influence and aesthetic which the furniture embraces. Simple, strong and visually pleasing.
The Hinoki dining set is an exercise in simplicity. Combining material components that are less desirable individually but when combined are beautiful. This furniture uses custom made, sand-cast bronze joining brackets and basic joinery for its main structural elements. The bronze brackets allow for simple, fast yet strong construction using common timber section sizes and nominal lengths, thereby almost eliminating waste. Whats more, the table and bench set can be adapted to any length and height with ease during manufacturing which means that "custom made" is not astronomically expensive. The furniture can also be disassembled using a screwdriver which makes transport and storage an option.
The Hinoki table comes with a 10mm thick toughened bronze glass top with hand rounded corners. The table is also available with a concrete top and in a variety of timber species.
