Akke 780, based in Long Island, are right up our street. The work is gorgeous, utilitarian industrialist design at its very best.
There are three collections: steam, split, inertia. ‘Steam’ was inspired by a sub-genre of science fiction called Steampunk, and combines s’steam power compenents’ with reclaimed timbers to create a grgeous, raw contrast.
The ‘Split’ designs are quite different, with finished wood and square stock steel offsetting one another beautifully in these modernist designs.
The ‘Inertia’ designs combine structured reclaimed plumbing pipes and fittings at jaunty angles interrupted by the unmoveable wooden panels.
Just a delight.
