"Focusing on the simplicity of structure and complexity of the curve, Elka finds its beauty in the subtle details; smooth curves, soft transitions and sharp lines that create a strong contrast within its overall geometry." says Pipson.

"Made of European Beech and reinforced with stainless-steel pins, Elka exploits new technologies in CNC machining to create seamless joints and expose stunning topographies within the grain."

From a distance Elka stands as a gesture, it's not until you engage more intimately with its structure that it exposes its hidden beauties to you."
