Zhú Zi Bamboo Furniture Collection
Modern design meets Eastern culture with this beautiful collection of unique bamboo furniture items. Its sober yet elegant design is contrasted by the distinctive texture of this unusual material. We decided to work with high quality bamboo for this range as it is not only unusual and beautiful, but also because it can be harvested in a sustainable and renewable way.
The name of the collection, Zhú Zi, is Mandarin for “made of bamboo”. To create our collection of unique designs we worked with three kinds of bamboo: natural, carbonized and dark carbonized. This material comes directly from the Anji county in China, which is known to offer the finest bamboo, and carved to perfection in our own workshop.

The Anji County
As we only want to work with the very best of materials, we searched the globe to find the finest bamboo. This led us to the Anji County in China. Thanks to its optimal climate and soil conditions, this 60,000 hectare green valley is known for some of the most valued bamboo in the world. After reaching maturity, the bamboo culms are cut by hand without harming the plant itself, and only the very best are selected to be used in our bamboo furniture designs.
Besides being one of the most used construction materials throughout Chinese history, bamboo also holds a significant cultural meaning for its people. In traditional Chinese folklore, bamboo is used as an analogy for one of the four guiding principles for model behaviour (the other three are plum blossom, chrysanthemum and orchid). Originating from its physical characteristics, bamboo symbolizes uprightness and tenacity.
