FABLE began with six simple utilities: a spoon, a bowl, a stool, a chair, a table and a storage cabinet. Six essential elements pared back to bare original character.
These typical elements are also represented in traditional children’s tales and seem to conjure belief that a woodsman has simply stepped outside, chopped down a tree and hand carved these functional objects – the simplicity of this setting defines cottage craft and each object is created uniquely from materials that seem immediately accessible from just outside the door.
These myths have been reinterpreted and designed for modern day utility. Fable is crafted from solid select white oak with difficult manufacturing details disguised within a simplified aesthetic and return to the original principles.
