Drawing inspiration from the architectural work of Louis Kahn’s Salk Institute, District Eight presents its latest merging of materials to create these distinctive designs. Featuring refined lines of sculpted concrete and solid oak, balanced with our use of traditional craftsmanship. Salk offers timeless design and artistry.
The collection is comprised of unique and original pieces including tables, seating and accessories. With each piece being created by our craftsmen utilising traditional techniques. This can be seen in all of the Salk pieces which are offered in three finishes of charred oak with acid black concrete, raw and seared oak matched with grey concrete.
Designed to reflect not just a contemporary industrial aesthetic but also taking into account people’s desire for choices, this well thought out collection is characterized by clever storage options and unique accessories. Salk dining table boasts a butterfly extension which can be easily manipulated to move from a 6 person setting to seating an additional 2 guests.
Add a contemporary touch to your working space with our Salk desk with slimline drawer. Clever concealment of cables is provided by the unique desk set. No work space requirement has been left unanswered. An addition accessory to our Salk collection is the hand cast concrete tray. Suitable for the entire collection and available in acid black or grey concrete.
In keeping with the architectural inspiration our Salk sofa is a unique, contemporary industrial design, that features incorporated side tables in solid oak. Its clean lined silhouette, modern styling of concrete and oak makes it an ideal accent for any room. Offset with plush cushion inserts of natural feather finished in a choice of either fabric or leather.
