There’s a traditional Chinese joinery technique called sun mao, it doesn’t require any nails or screws and instead of it waves joints together. This exact technique was widely applied while crafting this wooden furniture collection by Sun at Six called Opening.
Created by master craftsmen in Guangzhou, China, Opening abolishes any stigma surrounding the “Made in China” stereotype by showcasing the expertise and skill that’s involved with using the sun mao technique. All the wood is finished with house-made tung oil and the full grain vegetable-tanned leather is sourced from a family-owned tannery in Italy, another example of Sun at Six’s commitment to working with master artisans with a deep understanding for their craft. Overall, the collection evokes a contemporary aesthetic with an emphasis on considered living and timeless sensibilities.
Such furniture will add an unusual touch to your space, it’s a great idea for those who want to stand out a bit. The collection is suitable for mid-century modern and boho spaces and can be also welcome in other spaces, too.
