OIL CLOTH ISLAND

The Arteim Oilcloth island references the use of oilcloth (or wax cloth), in the kitchen. First developed in the middle ages, the thick canvas fabric was stretched, polished with pumice and soaked in linseed oil to create a hygienic and durable surface. During the 18th century, oilcloth was often stencilled or painted in vibrant colours or patterns.

 

The Arteim Oilcloth island can combine any choice of metal and vividly veined natural stone which creates an effortlessly modern centre piece to a kitchen or dining space. The island structure has been engineered to span an open dining area.
