Intricately Engraved Tables Made with Traditional Wood Burning Techniques

Husband and wife product design duo Matt Kennedy and Mix Sidthilaw-Kennedy are the minds behind Port Rhombus, a modern design company that melds classicism and technology in their furniture. Originally based out of Oregon, the Kennedy’s moved shop to Thailand this summer in order to gain new inspiration and continue studying sustainable natural materials.

Their use of old and new is highlighted in their series of engraved tables, which give the classic tradition of wood burning a new twist. Using lasers to engrave the table tops, each piece is intricately carved in patterns that almost look like henna tattoos.

Wood burning, which really took flight in the early 20th century with the invention of soldering pens, is an age-old tradition used to customize musical instruments, tools, and kitchenware.

Port Rhombus ramps up the possibilities, burning hardwood with lasers to great effect. Each piece is an artistic masterpiece, covered in hypnotic, mandala-like designs.

The walnut or rubberwood tables have become a hallmark of the brand, and they’ve recently expanded into other pieces using the technique, such as an engraved nightstand. To see more of their work and purchase pieces, see their Etsy store.
