Design

The unique beauty of Ancient Kauri has been discovered and crafted by ICEWOOD into modern luxurious furniture. The result is a unique concept of stylish, high-quality furniture designed for the discerning individual by using world leading skills and craftsmanship.

ICEWOOD uses food grade resin to preserve Ancient Kauri so it is heatproof, waterproof and scratchproof. The tables are perfectly preserved in the resin “ice” just like when they were buried in last Ice Age.

Ancient Kauri is a unique treasure. ICEWOOD’s tables are well-preserved in resin “ice”, and recreate the landscapes of our planet. The wood is the land. The active grains are snow-capped mountains. The dark grains are lush rainforests. The natural gums are the rivers flowing across the land with golden beaches. And the effortless craftsmanship is how we respect and treasure our land just as ICEWOOD preserves this gem-like table.
