Our core products are bamboo bowls and lacquer trays. All raw materials originate from natural resources. The finished products are unique and 100% handcrafted pieces. Our favorized material is bamboo. The albert L. (punkt) product line is very eye catching due to the extremely diverse color scheme and the uncluttered design. Our organic forms and shapes go hand in hand with the use of natural raw materials and underline the harmonic interaction between optic and haptics.

It takes a lot of time and skill to transform a bamboo plant into a bamboo bowl. Prior to processing the bamboo, the stems are submerged in water for several months. Afterwards each strip is cut, split and pressed. Finally the pieces are cut and divided into thin strips.

For our bowls the craftsmen form the pressed strips into rings. These are then assembled into discs. The disc is placed over a cement mold to bring it into form.

Once the form is shaped, it is immersed in natural resin. After drying the resin, the bowl is sanded for the first time. After this step the bowl’s surface is filled several times with a wood paste and carefully sanded again and again until the surface is smooth. Once the raw bowl is dried, the dye and lacquer are applied in several steps. Through a specific technique we are able to achieve a brilliant radiant deep color.

At the end, each bowl has become a unique 100% handcrafted piece of art, entirely made of natural materials.
