Rothko Serving Boards

Rothko Serving Boards
These wooden boards are for serving rather than for cutting, which makes sense once you notice the nicely crafted recessed rectangles (hence the 'Rothko') and how well the different sizes would mix and match for an architecturally minimal presentation. Made from sustainable panga panga wood, the Rothko Serving Boards were designed by Swedish studio Claesson Koivisto Rune and produced by Botswana furniture maker Peter Mabeo working in collaboration with local...Read more

Hafele’s “Fineline” Drawer Organizers
Have you ever walked into a kitchen showroom like Bulthaup or Poggenpohl?
