The domino range currently features 9 models produced in limited series of 200 pieces that have been branded on the inside. The use of different colour combinations and wood types makes each of the 200 pieces in each model truly unique. The concept behind to the Domino Range is a total rethink of conventional objects, such as the box containing the dominoes. The result is a novel way of translating this object into a new form that is more akin to sculpture, to the design object, making it more suitable to become part of the furniture rather than being put away in a drawer.

The idea of the traditional game, handcrafted in wood combines with the concept of the design object, for pleasurable contact with nature, its fragrances and textures. To be played alone or in company of others. We have chosen the domino game which is enveloped by a magic that will never disappear and is the perfect fit for our sculptural creativity. Each individual piece has a story and a name that reflects it. Inspiration is derived from sculpture of the past as well from more modern forms, and gives birth to characters that are often truly fascinating.

We use a range of high quality woods such as walnut, chestnut, beech, and fragrant cedar. The warm colours of the variuos types of wood are matched with the utmost care and creativity in a way that always ensures that special contrast , nuance or vein. We sometimes use woods that derive from other craftwork, in line with a recycling work ethic of striving to avoid wasting such a precious resource. Our domino are hand crafted and hand decorated using pyrography and carving techniques. The techniques we apply respect the natural qualities of the wood - the way is pleasant to touch and to look at - by using natural finishes that preserve its live, warm, look and feel.

These pieces are produced in small, numbered series. Being handcrafted, they are subject to slight variations in colour, shape and size.

These products are shipped with the rules of the domino game and a wooden container for the larger pieces.

There is a possibility to customize pieces of domino game: with colors, drawings dominoes,  engraved  by laser or pyrography. Price to be agreed.
