design in the slow lane.

i love this new mun furniture collection from interior designer Christine Starkenburg for Andaacht Studio in the Netherlands. It’s called slow wood, and it’s hand-made with love and attention by local craftsmen in Fryslan, using solid wood, 100% natural finishes and mineral paint on iron bases for an industrial look and feel.

designer Christien Starkenburg designed side tables and asked a well seasoned local craftsman to make them for her. they came up with the name Slow Wood, because of the use of (very slow drying) mineral paints. The Mun collection has a family of models which all relate to each other, to be mixed at whim, for your own personal style.
