HOW IT WORKS

 
 

Inspired by the beauty of imperfection, DIY culture and the Bauhaus movement, DANKOMADE combines Wabi-Sabi aesthetic, sustainabLE DESIGN, brutalism and minimalism to create unique furniture and decor.

 
 

Waste, material costs and other fabrication expenses are minimalized by gathering and upcycling discarded industrial materials into durable, robust items.

Hand tools, structural integrity and traditional construction methods are prioritized over powertools, weak prefab composites, cutting corners or disposable consumerism.

Signs of use are embraced: flaws, quirks, bubbles, irregularities, patina, rust, worn corners and edges are celebrated within wood, steel, brass, copper, gold, concrete, leather, bone, linen, glass and stone.

Like us, no two pieces are the same: each carries a unique history and ages with dignity, becoming more interesting as it earns new scars, wrinkles, character and experience.
