If you're interested in a more traditional look and feel, the CUBE and KNIGHT pieces come in natural woods as well. Raw veneers have been chosen for their richness of colour and personality of grain. Using their secret methods of processing, each wood is then hand-cut and fitted implementing unique marquetry techniques.

ROCKMAN & ROCKMAN has over 15 years experience creating product and Interior Projects for Luxury Brands, Architects, Creative Agencies and Art & Design Institutions. They also have a huge archive of old catalogues and reference from the 20th Century furniture industry, most specific to the Shoreditch area and some from other related areas like Birmingham and Sheffield. The catalogues are a fascinating goldmine of designs from a lost era and they plan to post them all on their website (under the history link), so keep checking back for the latest additions.
