Who are we
Both of us being from the French coastal region, we met in Heidelberg, Germany.
Being fans of an art of living that combines respect for the environment and personal well-being, it only took a few meals for the desire to go further than just sharing recipes to be born.
Ambitious and inspired, we wanted to develop an object that reflected our desires, our way of life and our maritime origins.
The stones with its soft curves and colours quickly establish themselves as a decorative choice. Ours will be comfortable, durable and visually pleasing!
Today, we are happy to share with you both our philosophy of life and our creative enthusiasm, thanks to our Kayu brand.
Manu et Cécile
Anyone who has had fun picking rocks from the beach or river banks knows that not one is like the other. Collecting pebbles is also about rediscovering your inner child, your first amazements, the simple joys that come from direct contact with nature. A variety of shapes and colours maintains your curiosity and invite you to observe and contemplate....
In a time of hurry and mass production, we all want to rediscover these essential emotions. This quest for authenticity has led us to create unique pieces, using a craft process that resembles us on a human scale.
We produce each item by hand, a process that requires several days of work per stone. Our merino sheep wool is washed and produced locally in the German region of Baden-Wurtenberg. Silk threads enhance our creations.
Our stones transform the mineral into the natural by playing with the material and the volumes and therefore creating a trompe-l'oeil. It is the result of our passion for decorative objects that combines beauty with reality and durability with comfort.
It invites nature into your home's heart.
