Silver Knot

Furniture line for Arco

During the production of quality wooden furniture, ‘inferior’ sections of wood are usually removed. Silver Knot reveals how beautifully unique these natural features actually are. Not only are the knots used in the furniture, emphasis is added by pouring in a silver alloy. Traditionally seen as ugly scars, now the knots become eye-catching treasures in their own right. Silver Knot was made to mark the 100th anniversary of Arco, and a new version was later placed in the Muziekgebouw Eindhoven.
