kaiwa torched table
Kaiwa - loosely translated from Japanese meaning conversation. Designed by Kirk Van Ludwig, his intention was to angle the ends of the table creating multiple conversation lines between occupants. The biased grain direction, skewed leg direction, and crease lined edge create different looks depending on ones orientation to the table. Shown in outdoor version sustainably sourced Western Red Cedar from Vancouver Island, the top is torched and finished with a UV protected German hard wax oil finish. The sides and leg are treated with a lightly white tinted oil wax finish offering a hint of Scandinavian design. Also
