Element is a furniture company founded by Numen/For Use in Croatia in 2005, acting in a joint-business partnership with a local design furniture retailer.
The underlying aim was to create a platform where the group could work independently in the production of prototypes and models, without the pressure usually coming from the side of extrinsic manufacturers, furniture industry and, to an extent, the general market.
The main concept of ELEMENT™ collection relies on the exclusive use of an abundant Croatian feedstock - solid wood (FSC certified Slavonian oak) to achieve a high profile product at a fairly affordable price.
Radically simple and clean, almost ascetic design warrants a sustainable and fast production technique and methodology while revealing the natural markings and purity of the raw material. The inherent luxury of quality solid wood is emphasised through formal reduction and inner modesty of each piece.
The company is named ELEMENT™ precisely to highlight the elementary and basic aspect of its collection and bespoke items and the subdued merit of their formal understatement executed in first-grade feedstock.
