The TAP Range by Dessein Furniture is made from plantation timber Rubberwood which is an agricultural by-product of the latex production industry. It is considered to be one of the most ecologically sound and durable lumbers used in the manufacturing of furniture and fittings. The natural sap from Rubberwood is ‘latex’. After the economic viability of latex tapping comes to an end, the Rubberwood tree is felled and prepared for the next stage of its lifecycle: furniture production. Key requirements included an ability to demonstrate a creative understanding and technical interpretation of each designer’s work; a thorough understanding of the properties, capabilities and limitations of Rubberwood; and a preparedness to translate these aspects into beautifully resolved furniture pieces. Serious love for these guys !
