Gorillas may not be immediately associated with holistic lifestyles, but at Gorilla Furniture a holistic approach dictates the entire design process. Designers Dan Weber and Steve Wilson founded Santa Barbara-based Gorilla in 2005 with a mission to “encourage healthy lifestyles, environmental and social consciousness, creativity and open mindedness.” How? Through furniture that uses eco-friendly materials and considers our interaction with the built environment.
The Diving Board Table pictured here uses recyclable steel and renewable bamboo, finished with non-toxic wax. The angular form, minimalist lines, and thoughtful combination of natural and industrial materials make this piece an ideal representation of environmentally-sensitive modern furniture. Another great discovery from this past weekend’s exploration of CA Boom.
