Alice Minkina is a genius young Russian designer who offered a cool eco-friendly idea – using bamboo for making furniture as it’s fast growing and can yield 20 times more timber compared to other trees making it a renewable alternative to typical wooden sources. The Sagano bamboo furniture reflects this sustainable vision through each carefully assembled layer, presenting an environmentally conscious, contemporary collection.
The eco-friendly collection, which was presented at Isaloni Satellite Milan 2016, uses single strips of the flexible material to create a series of solid wood pieces. It comprises a chair, a table and lamps, all made from bamboo strips.
The Sagano bamboo chair required 160 meters of thin twisted veneer sheets to construct it. The circular seat features a curved embracing backrest and is supported by a rounded base and three tubular legs. The furniture piece is complimented with an asymmetric coffee table and individual hanging lamps. The Sagano bamboo chair is available in two different versions.
The Sagano bamboo lamp can take on various different shapes, and the light highlights the bamboo’s texture.
The Sagano bamboo table is a bamboo cone with a glass top, the design is pretty simple and stylish, suitable for many modern ambiences.
All the pieces look great both in black and in white colors, they contrast with bamboo in a cool way. These are cool and totally green furniture pieces that can fit any modern interior, and you can use them both at home or for public places. Create your own super eco-friendly lounge with Sagano furniture collection!
