Cutting Board

A new angle on the essential cutting board

The cutting board is so fundamental to each kitchen that you may not even pay attention to it and that is why we have tried to take up the challenge and do something new and different.Our new Cutting Board series of three cutting- and serving boards, each have their own unique and functional details.The starting point is naturally solid oak from sustainably grown forests - inch-thick and with a light oil treatment that elevates the oak's gorgeous grain patterns and provides light protection against stains.And this brings us to the new and different take on a cutting board: The edges of the board are cut diagonally, at a 45-degree angle. This design choice gives the series a bold and different appearance reminiscent of how architects draw in perspective. In fact, it makes the boards visually pop out of the surface they are lying on.Like all of our designs, the details are never mere decorations; the angled edges allow the boards to be placed closely together, and you can easily push finely chopped herbs from one board to another. It is also easy to grip the board and lift it from the table.

Crush Me (Black)

Salt and pepper with a twist

Simple problems have simple solutions – but sometimes it requires a carefully thought-through design to give the solution the perfect shape. At the bottom of the salt & pepper grinder, Crush Me, you will find such a solution to one of the small problems of everyday life: A small disc that catches the loose salt and pepper grains that otherwise end up on the tablecloth. Alternatively, you can simply turn the grinder upside down since it stands just as well on the top.

The front edge of the strip is slightly raised so it makes for a good space to display the front of your favourite cookbooks - or open to the recipe while your hands are deeply buried in dough.You will find an add-on to the Magnet Shelf behind the sumptuous oak surface, where a row of super magnets doubles as a knife holder. The extra-strong magnets allow you to have your most-used knives at hand, while the soft oak gently ensures that the edge of the knife does not become blunt or nicked. A solution that is far more preferable than the usual mess of knives and equipment in the top kitchen drawer.

Filigrantree planter

A sustainable Christmas tree

We want to make Christmas more sustainable. Instead of a Christmas tree that is discarded after Christmas Eve every year, our solution is a recyclable Christmas tree - a Filigrantree.EKTA has taken over the sales and development of Trine Find's popular Filigrantree. Trine Find originally came up with the idea for the simple Christmas tree years ago when she decided to make an Advent calendar for her son. It quickly dawned on her that the innovative and sustainable Nordic design created a new possibility for extending Christmas. The functionality and simplicity of the design was, therefore, an obvious addition to EKTA's other collections.A hypoallergenic Christmas tree that does not shed needles, and which can stand inside throughout December - year after year.
