The exciting surfaces and high-quality materials of Keiko make it an unmistakable living sculpture. This extraordinary remake of a classic piece is further proof of Lambert’s expertise and competence in the area of occasional furniture. Keiko banana leaf is made using a new handcrafting technique. Sun-dried banana leaves are pressed onto the body with heavy, hot irons and finely sanded and polished. Once the surface has dried completely, several layers of clear varnish are applied and then sanded and polished for many hours with ever-finer sandpaper until the perfect shine is achieved.
