About the ProductMy palette of materials consists of rattan, buri, kawayan and abaca. Each has their own texture, colour, smell and sound. You can bend, twist and weave them in endless ways. It is a feast of the senses to work with these.' - Kenneth Cobonpue. Typified by its crescent shape and distinct central crest, the Croissant collection is as ergonomic as it is visually relaxing. Its gentle slopes glide down to the arm rests as if to encourage a posture of leisure. The Croissant is made of hundreds of hand woven coconut leaf cores (buri). These are individually tied with abaca rope and tied down by translucent nylon wires over a hand sculpted frame of light steel. Indoor Version: Abaca or Buri Weave, and Steel or Outdoor Version: Polyethylene Fiber, Nylon Twine and Steel. Available in Brown and Whitewash
