A stunning lattice paneled American hardwood show house glowed in the low-lit design-centric Hall at the International Furniture Fair in Singapore and was selected by the judges for the “Best Stand in Show” award (200 sqm and below).
This year, the American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC) continued with its highly acclaimed ‘Designed in Asia and made in Asia with American Hardwood’ theme at IFFS. The showcase featured furniture pieces from highly recognised Southeast Asian furniture manufacturers, including Grafunkt, Hinika, Koda and OK Wood. These pieces are made in Asia, in a variety of American hardwood species – from the warm, dark tones of American Black Walnut, to the richness of American Cherry.
By using American hardwood, designers are assured that they are minimising their impact on the environment throughout all stages of the product life cycle, from extraction through processing, use, reuse, and final disposal.
The AHEC stand was designed by Jarrod Lim, a Singaporean furniture designer-maker, and constructed in American Cherry veneer, hand-woven in the form of historical vernacular architecture.
