Product description

A handmade wooden statue painted by hand too, featuring a monkey riding a dragon, typical scene of the carnival floats, used in the Ogoh Ogoh parade which is performed in Bali, one day before Nyepi, the Balinese New Year Eve, every March. During sunset of that day (between 5pm and 6pm) the Balinese people parade the streets of their village with their gigantic statues, which took them approximately two months (and probably a whole lot of Bintangs) to build. Ogoh-Ogohs are made of bamboo and paper and represent evil creatures. During the parade a passionate but deafening mixture of the kulkul, claxons, gamelan and drum music is played. The idea is to make as much noise as possible to scare away evil spirits, to vanquish negative elements and create a balance with God, Mankind, and Nature. When the night finally comes, these gigantic statues are turned into flames, thus representing complete victory of Good over the Evil.

Concept

SLOW RECLAIMED is a family of tables, chairs, armchairs, barstools, stools, and side tables handmade of reclaimed teak and centuries-old know-how. A piece of history in your home.

Both in Indonesia and in the furniture manufacturing industry worldwide, reclaimed teak wood is considered one of the most valuable and durable materials of choice. We take our furniture production straight to the source, working with expertly skilled Indonesian artists and investing in their years of ancient crafting techniques to deliver an unparalleled result.

On the intersection of art…
A native of Southeast Asia, Tectona Grandis, or "teak" for short, was once used for shipbuilding due to its magnificent water-resistant qualities and longevity. Harnessed under brutal heat and humidity, catastrophic rainstorms, and intense moisture, teak was made to adapt, thrive and retain its color, beauty, and functionality. As the primary material for all our creations, it is salvaged from old buildings, bridges, and other structures during demolition.

Contrary to teak wood sourced from new trees, reclaimed teak lumber has already proved its durability and decay resistance. This is a rare phenomenon nowadays when most teak lumber is planted and grown specifically for the purpose of the furniture. Through this upcycling process, new trees are not felled to make your piece. At the same time, reclaimed teak presents a beautiful opportunity to honor the past, and serves as a reminder of heritage and ancestry in a world where embracing slowness is an act of rebellion. When you choose reclaimed teak furniture, you're also choosing to protect teak forests, contribute to local communities, and maintain a piece of history by giving it new life.
