Zanat Koam Sideboard

Koam Sideboard

Zanat Koam Sideboard


Designed by Jean-Marie Massaud

Koam is a low sideboard made entirely in solid wood resting on a minimalist base made of expertly welded steel plates with no visible welding marks. Strong aesthetic appeal of this minimalist piece is to be found in perfect proportions and its charismatic “burnt wood” carving pattern that entirely covers the drawer fronts, as well as by the interplay between the elegant wooden body and the metal base.

Koam Sideboard consists of two larger drawers to the right and two smaller drawers sitting on top of each other on the left. The orientation of the carving pattern differs on the small and large drawers, which visually breaks the piece in two segments.

For me design is about seeing the context, discovering the stakes, be they cultural, ecological, economic…, and finding a simple solution that makes a creative synthesis of the stakes.”

Since the beginning of his career (a 1990 graduate of Paris’ ENSCI-Les Ateliers, Paris Design Institute), Jean-Marie Massaud has been working on an extensive range of works, stretching from architecture to objects, from one-off project to serial ones, from macro environment down to micro contexts.

Major brands such as Axor, Cassina, Christofle, Poliform, Toyota have solicited his ability to mix comfort and elegance, zeitgeist and heritage, generosity and distinction.

Beyond these elegant designs, his quest for lightness – in matters of essence – synthesize three broader stakes: individual and collective fulfillment, economic and industrial efficiency, and environmental concerns.

“I’m trying to find an honest, generous path with the idea that, somewhere between the hard economic data, there are users. People. ”His creations, whether speculative or pragmatic, explore this imperative paradigm: reconciling pleasure with responsibility, the individual with the collective. We have known and admired the works of Jean-Marie much before we launched Zanat. He accepted our invitation to collaborate after a meeting at Salone Del Mobile in Milan in 2018.

Jean-Marie has challenged Zanat to push the boundaries of what we can do in solid wood and to achieve the perfection in project execution. The result is not only seen in some extraordinary objects we have created together, but also in generating skills and knowhow that will benefit Zanat for many years to come.

Zanat provides a five-year limited warranty against manufacturing defects in standard products (materials and workmanship). Wear, tear and product damages is not covered under this warranty. The claims will not cover minor checks in wood, which result from relative humidity changes. Cracks in wood that result as a consequence of air humidity outside the above-indicated safe range, discolorations resulting from direct exposure of products to sunlight or otherwise improper use will not be covered under the warranty.

All wood used in Zanat’s products comes from sustainably managed forests or private fruit orchards (walnut and cherry). FSC certificates for forest-originating wood are available upon request. Moreover, in 2021 Zanat undertook a commitment to plant three new trees for every tree we used to produce our products.

Color variations and small healthy knots in wood are indications of material authenticity and cannot be considered a defect. Wood is a hygroscopic material which absorbs and sheds moisture to adopt to the humidity of the environment in which it is placed and it expands or shrinks as a consequence. To minimize checking and cracking, all Zanat products should be kept indoors (outdoors use is OK if protected from precipitation and direct sunlight) and air humidity should not be less than 40% or more than 70%. Humidity outside this range is not optimal for human health and can result in product damage.
