Ergonomic Innovations

Espinosa's unique furniture pieces are his gift back to Mother Earth. No

two pieces are alike; each one is an artistic installation by itself. And yet,

surprisingly, every unit remains functional by design.

Lesbak NY

At first glance, it looks like a seated skeleton—but the Lesbak NY was designed to nicely hug the human contour. Its long armrest makes it for ideal for lounging, and the headrest snugly supports a tired neck and back. You can be comfortable when seated while hugging the knees, or with legs outstretched and ready for a seated power nap.

Dimensions: 80cm W x 86cm L x 105cm H
Handcrafted mortise and tenon joints with wooden pegs
Made of Yakal, Ipil and Molave

Balangay

Inspired by the Balangay, an ancient marine vessel once used by early Filipinos. Its strength and design shines through this magnificent conference table. The base is made up of over 50 elements — intricately connected by wooden pegs and wedges. The imprints and marks of ancestry are carefully polished and accurately patched by small pieces of wood.

Dimensions: 3.5m L X 1.5m W X 0.70m H
Made from Yakal, Ipil, Giho, Saplungan, stainless tubes and glass tops

Sarimanok

Sarimanok was created out of a playful collaboration between Espinosa and his team of young artisans, whom he let loose to “make their own mistakes” and play around with the materials given to them. What emerged was a piece of functional art that is at once whimsical and striking—a true statement of EADE’s mastery of art and craft.

Dimensions: 60cm W x 60cm L x 132cm H
Made of Yakal, Ipil & Molave

Circle of Life

A stunning piece that tells the story of life, death and rebirth. A reflection of the artist’s own creative process—sculpting, fashioning and giving new new life to old wood.

Dimensions: 5 cm W x 140 cm L x 214 cm H
Made of Yakal, Ipil and Narra

Maria Makiling

An homage to the beauty of Maria Makiling, the famed forest nymph of Mt. Makiling in Laguna, Philippines. Espinosa embraces Makiling’s mountains and lush forests, and the free-flowing, feminine spirit in this moving piece.

Dimensions: 5 cm W x 130 cm L x 214 cm H
Made of Yakal, Ipil and Molave 

Fiesta

Fiesta (‘festival’) is a dynamic piece made of upcycled hardwood panels, inspired by the Filipinos’ love for celebration. A pattern of little flags emerge, reminiscent of the ‘banderitas’ (small flags on a string) that adorn Philippine towns during fiestas, and brings energy to what would otherwise be an inert space.

Dimensions: 5 cm W x 280 cm L x 214 cm H
Made of Yakal, Ipil and Molave 

El Kapitan

Especially made for the top executive, the Kapitan is long and wide, and gives the one in the kabisera (center), power and prominence. For equal distribution, the table can also be split in the middle, creating two slim tables.

Dimensions: 213cm L x 107cm W x 72cm H
Made of Yakal, Ipil, Molave and Narra
Handcrafted mortise and tenon joints with wooden pegs
All elements are detachable.

Peace Table

On one side, there appears to be a gun that is finally at rest; on the other, a segment of a table that transforms into a Church pew. In the middle, pieces that represent the breaking of bread, amid two transparent segments that symbolize honesty, openness, and transparency. This is the Peace Table, a poignant representation of the Filipino people’s decades-long desire to achieve peace in the southern regions, amid ongoing clashes between some Christian and Muslim groups, and between the Philippine government and rebel groups.

Dimensions: 155 cm W x 240 cm L x 72 cm H
Made of Yakal and Ipil

LuzViMin


The LuzViMin may resemble three small fishing boats with outriggers, and can function as three separate executive tables. Their names are derived from the three largest island groups in the Philippines—Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. All are parts of one large piece that represents the entire Philippine nation.

Dimensions: 170cm W x 500cm L x 70 cm H
Made of Yakal, Ipil & Molave

Binhi

Binhi is the Filipino word for “seed.” It tells the story of seeds that are scattered either by the wind or by the flight of birds. Espinosa explains, “The seeds are everywhere — floating and lying about. We must reunite them with the land and plant them well, so that new trees may rise again.”

Dimensions: 120 cm W x 205 cm L x 76 cm H
Made from Yakal, Ipil, Giho, Saplungan, and glass tops

Pepe

Named after Joey “Pepe” Smith, the legendary singer-songwriter, master guitarist, and drummer became known for his work with the seminal rock group Juan dela Cruz, which was formed in 1970 and would later on define “Pinoy rock” for generations of Filipino music lovers.

Dimensions: 72 cm W x 190 cm L x 90 cm H
Made of Yakal and Ipil

Mercedes

It looks and feels like a piece of architecture more than a comfortable seat, but the Mercedes is surprisingly comfortable for the back. It can be enjoyed in a variety of positions and angles.

Dimensions:
 75 cm W x 209 cm L x 125 cm H
Made of Yakal, Ipil, Molave and Narra 

Divan

Divan is derived from the Filipino word “dibdiban” which means “heart to heart.” It is a bench fit for two – lovers, strangers, friends, or new acquaintances.

Dimensions: 52cm D x 137cm W x 76cm H
Made of Ipil, Yakal, Molave and Narra
Handcrafted mortise & tenon joints with wooden pegs
Backrest is detachable

2 Gods

2 Gods was inspired by the Indian science fiction satire film, PK, in which the protagonist realizes that religion and its many deities can sometimes be used for personal gains and to satisfy someone’s greed. “In the end, he realizes that there are many gods made by man—symbolized by the smaller table inside— but there is only one true God who is omniscient and omnipotent, symbolized by the outer table”, explains Espinosa.

Dimensions: 

Center Table: 90cm W x 140cm L x 40cm H
Executive Table: 150 cm W x 200cm x 75cm H
Made of Yakal, Ipil, Nara and  Saplungan 

Kaliwete

A colloquial Filipino term meaning “leftie”, or left-handed individuals, Kaliwete is simply that—a chair made especially for lefties, but one made with their optimal comfort and aesthetic quality in mind.

Dimensions: 73 cm W x 71 cm L x 80 cm H

Made of Yakal, Ipil, Molave & Narra 

Bángko Sentrál

The artist takes the common Filipino bench called “bangkó” to new levels with Bángko Sentrál. Its asymmetrical, pointed, and masculine looks, are all made with a playful display of detachable elements.

Dimensions: 125cm L x 55cm W x 90cm H
Made of Ipil, Yakal, Molave and Narra
Handcrafted mortise and tenon joints with wooden pegs.
All elements are detachable.

Butase

A mini construction wonder, Butasé is both light and sturdy. Surprisingly, this compact chair can easily fit in a car trunk and can be carried by one hand. It’s durable, portable and functional artwork, all in one.

Dimensions: 44cm D x 33cm W x 82cm H

Made of Yakal, Ipil and Narra

Adjustable seat and back

Baki

An homage to Espinosa’s years as a young activist, Baki is derived from the Filipino word “makibaka”, which loosely means “join the revolution.” The functional art piece is also a tribute to Lean Alejandro, one of the young student leaders in the late '70s and early '80s, who fought against the Marcos dictatorship.

Espinosa also calls this piece the “Yoga Chair”, as the Baki flexes your body to assume different positions, while helping you maintain proper posture. It focuses on your lumbar region, preventing you from slouching.

 

Dimensions: 52cm D x 40cm W x 68cm H
Made of Yakal and Ipil
Handcrafted mortise and tenon joints with wooden pegs

Trono

Trono means “Throne.” It was part of the “100 Chairs Around the World” exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Manila. Grand and yet seemingly whimsical, holes were placed on the base to suspend the ischium bones while supporting the buttocks, giving ergonomic care and attention for the lumbar region, arms and feet. As the artist puts it, “It makes you feel like you’re sitting on the clouds.”

Dimensions: 70cm L x 74cm W x 86cm H

Made of Yakal, Ipil and Narra

Handcrafted mortise and tenon joints with wooden pegs

Lesbak Bamboo

An ergonomic masterpiece made from cool bamboo, Lesback is designed to comfortably accommodate almost every way you can sit. Designed to provide optimum spinal support, it carefully follows the curves of your vertebra, giving you maximum comfort.
