“Smooth, rich and dark”
Rich and smooth, the Kast Iron collection is crafted from Asmara Ebony, bolted to industrial cast iron legs. Asmara Ebony is a pioneering finish that provides a sustainable alternative to the precious, dense and smooth ebony timbers that are native to India and Africa, and prized as an ornamental wood for furniture.
Originally created for the guitar industry, Asmara Ebony has now been exclusively developed by Timothy Oulton for use in furniture. During a complex process, pine wood is heavily compressed with resin and then stained to form an extremely durable hardwood finish, which is almost impervious to natural wood movement. Even to the well trained eye, the treated timber faithfully emulates the luscious tropical look and feel of authentic ebony.
