Independent furniture shop, Adventures in Furniture have supplied the teak table and benches you can see in the Timber Transformer exhibition. Adventures in Furniture were selected for the show for their award-winning sustainability efforts and commitment to responsible business practices.

The furniture in the show is part of the Ethnicraft range. The timber is grown in in Central Java on plantations managed by the Indonesian governmental body. Strict terms are applied to ensure sufficient replanting annually and to manage the size and quantity of trees that can be felled each year. The pieces are then hand-crafted in Tegal, Java, Indonesia.

"Top grade Indonesian teak is a beautiful and strong wood which makes great furniture. We are delighted with the successful efforts to ensure the sustainable sourcing of this material. Adventures in Furniture believes in the responsible production of contemporary furniture, applying not just to timber sourcing but also workshop conditions." Kim Corbett, director.
