Saigon Lacquer by Arian Brekveld
Arian Brekveld designed together with Mr. Niȇn and his colleagues the delicate lacquer work collection Saigon Lacquer. Each product consists of several layers of wood, which are subsequently covered in sixteen layers of lacquer according to the traditional method. This process ensures perfectly finished products without visible seams. The quality of the finishing combined with the design results in unique products that could not have been realized through any other production process. The collection consists of serving trays, candlesticks, a ceramic dish and two low tables.
