ELEMENT™ is a specialised furniture company from Croatia founded in 2005 by the prominent Croatian-Austrian industrial design collective Numen/For Use and acting in a joint-business partnership with an established local design furniture retailer INTERA.
ELEMENT™ produces distinctive contemporary furniture catering to the needs of the local and international market. All ELEMENT™ products are created and signed by Numen/For Use, with a few honourable exceptions.
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.
