COMPANY OVERVIEW

introduction


you’ll find a collaboration of artists who eat, drink and breathe design. With inspiration anywhere and everywhere − from the Brooklyn Bridge, the Empire State Building to galleries filled with modern art, the ideas flourish. The environment is one of brilliant brainstorming combined with thoughtful design. Life, art and design are interconnected. It is impossible to talk about one without referencing the other. With roots spanning the globe, each member of our creative team brings with them a uniquely influenced perspective and style sensibility. Finding inspiration in London’s edgy Camden Market, chic and sophisticated New York or the avant-garde Gorky Park area of Moscow, our team reinvents furniture and fixtures of the past to create eclectic globally influenced collections that speak to refined styling.

GLASS BLOWING Glassblowing is a glass forming technique through which a gathering of molten glass can endure into a thing of beauty. Free blowing allows the craftsman to be more spontaneous in creating the finished piece as the fluidity of the liquid cools and takes on a sculptural quality. Molds are also used to create pieces that have more uniformity and rigidity and where we want to play more with the optical effects of glass and light.

We rely on the expertise of our factories to determine the base material properties that will ensure quality and stability of the finished products.

Complex, three dimensionally shaped products can be created in all of these techniques. These

In addition to their functional aspect, glazes can form a variety of surface finishes including degrees of glossy or matte finish and color.

DRIFTWOOD Driftwood is wood that has been washed onto a shore or beach of a sea, lake, or river by the action of winds, tides or waves. It is a form of marine debris or tide-wrack. We use this material to create astonishing works of art and furniture. In fact, finding the right material is tantamount to the finished piece and akin to a big treasure hunt for the artist.

WOOD


Wood is one of the most commonly used materials in Dimond Home for making furniture pieces because of its rich appearance and durability. Our approach to furniture design is

beauty of the wood is all the ornamentation a piece of furniture needs. This approach to furniture design results in simple, graceful, well constructed furniture that fulfills its function.

TEAK Teak timber is particularly valued for its durability and water resistance, and is used for exterior construction, veneer, furniture, carving, and turnings. Teak’s durability stems from natural oils that make it an ideal material in exposed locations as well as termite and pest resistant. This high oil content, along with high tensile strength and tight grain makes it particularly suitable for outdoor furniture and wet environment applications. Teak is even durable even when not treated with oil or varnish.

MAHOGANY Mahogany is a kind of wood prized for its beauty and dark color. It has a straight, fine, even grain that is relatively free of voids and pockets making it ideal for fine furniture. Additionally, Mahogany is known for its excellent workability and exceptional durability.
