London born and raised designer Adrianna Shamaris has a love and passion for South East Asia that has accompanied her for now more then 25 years. First only as a place to source her unique materials, the Indonesian island of Sumatra became in 2004 one of her creative laboratories.
Her works are modern, organic furniture pieces that never miss to amaze in their simplicity and effectiveness. For her collection ‘Triple Burnt’, she burnt and sealed each piece of wood three times. “One day, I just grabbed a torch to dry the wood and burnt it,” says Shamaris. “I sanded it, burnt it again and again, and the Triple Burnt Black collection was born.”
