The inspiration for this product was found in nature and turned into an abstract form through design. Daisy is an attempt in re-birth of handcrafts and an awakening of interest in modern, hand-made products. It is not a coincidence that this piece was designed for Rukotvorine (Manulution's parent company), which in Bosnia symbolizes the tradition of woodcarving and local heirloom furniture. A beautiful, flower shaped table top features hand-carved edges and hand-carved flowers. The Daisy Coffee Table is made in sustainably harvested wood and finished using eco-friendly Danish oil.
This table is a part of the Daisy Collection, which also includes: Daisy Chair
, Daisy Dining Table
and Daisy Side Table
Manulution buys walnut and cherry logs from private orchards throughout Bosnia. These are trunks of old trees, which are cut when their productive life of fruit bearing is over and need to be replaced by new ones. They are bought directly from villagers, often in very small quantities, whenever it is offered. Other hardwoods (i.e. maple, oak, elm, and ash) are sourced from public forestry companies, the management of which has vastly improved in recent years. The forest certification process has started and several forests are FSC certified. There is also concrete evidence that forests are exploited sustainably. A recent forestry inventory (financed and supported by the World Bank) has shown that Bosnia's forest volume has increased significantly since the last inventory was conducted in 1960s. In fact, the study indicated that Bosnia, ostensibly, has more trees per capita than any country in Europe or Central Asia.
