Designed by Ayush Kasliwal for Mater, the Bowl side table is handmade by fair trade suppliers in Jaipur, India, using sustainably harvested natural mango wood and steel legs.
An adaptation of traditional wooden lacquer trays, the Bowl side table is inspired by objects that are simple and multifunctional. The shape is derived from traditional kneading bowls, found extensively across south of India.
It is turned manually on the lathe, showcasing the skill of the “kharadi” or the woodturning community, thereby supporting local skills. The legs are made of mild steel, machined out of rods. The finishing is done with lead free water-based PU lacquers, respecting the local environment and fair trade workers.
