Corvin Cristian in his range TAKÎM has used culinary implements as his inspiration for this range of brushed Romanian oak chairs.
"Our range of furniture is the result of extensive experience in the field of restaurant and bar interior design. We are trying to fill in gaps we noticed in the HoReCa dedicated furniture such as the right balance between price and uniqueness, sense of solidity and permanency.Usually, there is a reverse ratio between the technology used in one product and its uniqueness, as technology; in order to be effective requires mass production and standardization. We addressed this issue by relying on craftsmanship rather than technology and adapted the design to artisan skills to be found in small workshops in Transylvania and to locally sourced materials.
Transylvania (“the land of the forest”) was until 20 years ago an important producer of wooden furniture. After the revolution, the furniture industry faded away but some tradition still survives and we are confident it can be revived." Corvin Cristian
