About the ProductMario Ruiz’s new collection for Expormim speaks the language of wood and rattan, quiet and natural, yet elegant. Because simplicity is not at odds with excellence. Thus, the Spanish company Expormim, best known for its outdoor furniture, seeks to enhance the interior space by focusing on the selection of warm natural materials that convey the feeling of home. Another distinctive feature is the attention to detail. Small touches that help create great furnishings. The “Kiri” set of round coffee tables will delight those who enjoy after-dinner conversations. What surprises the most is the combination of the rattan legs with the different finishings available for the tabletop: lacquered, solid wood and natural stone. It may be difficult to imagine how such a supple material like rattan can support the weight of wood or stone, but rattan is actually strong. And when combined, it works fine aesthetically speaking.
The BrandMore about this Brand
La Exportadora del Mimbre was founded by lawyer Miguel Laso Tortosa in 1960 to export wicker products. Tortosa had identified a gap in the European market for products made from natural materials. He brought in the wicker from the nearby region of Cuenca and it was handcrafted into baskets, folding screens, cradles and toys. A few years later, armchairs and loungechairs were added to the company’s range.
