A closer look at Strobus

From pinus strobus the latin name for the white pine, the Strobus pine cone was inspired by our love of nature. It’s so robust, you can use it as a doorstop or a bookend in your study or living room – or partner it with a Quercus acorn for asymmetrical bookends. Too heavy to stand though, simply lay it on its side.

The materials

The Strobus pine cone is made from moulded cement. We wanted to use a more rugged material but to give it a fresh, decorative use. With its rustic texture and washed finish, it brings contrast and balance to smooth, finished rooms.

Design details

For a house to feel like a home, it needs things that are purely decorative. Like a picture or a sculpture that will add life and texture to a room. Our ornaments have lots of different finishes, so they look like they’ve been collected over time, and are all part of your unique story.

Design inspiration

Pine trees are among the oldest plants on the planet. Our brain’s pineal gland, shaped like (and named after) the pine cone, is considered by many to be our Third Eye (‘Eye of Insight’). So for centuries, for many cultures, the pine cone is the symbol of human enlightenment .  Also, the pine cone displays the Golden spiral or Fibonacci spiral which links to the ‘Golden ratio’ – a mathematical ratio seen universally in nature.
