The zkollektion is the result of a collaboration between creative thinkers and makers. Creative agency Blattler and Oak & Iron joined forces to create a new collection of furniture embracing the core proposition of Oak & Iron.
‘Initially we commissioned Oak & Iron founder Terence Facey to build a few tables for our agency space’ explains Daniel Blattler, founder of blattler ltd. ‘During the design process we started a fruitful dialogue that led to the idea of creating something in collaboration. The result is a series of striking hand-crafted oak furniture pieces with Z-shaped iron legs – hence the name zkollektion.’
The natural kiln-dried English oak is ethically sourced and hand picked for its individual beauty.
‘As designers we really appreciate good craftsmanship. Working with Terry and Tom is a real pleasure. Decades of experience and a real understanding of the materials is making it natural to strip the design back to basics. The zkollektion isn’t flash or pretentious. It’s just simple design, beautifully crafted. Each piece is unique, as the wood is selected for its beautiful markings.’
If the contemporary zkollektion marks a departure for Oak & Iron’s renowned rustic design, it certainly continues in their tradition to create the most beautiful hand-crafted oak furniture.
