The
Story

With her label Brukseilas, Lies Van Ginderachter wants to polish the image about her city and share her proud love for Brussels. For her, Brussels is first and foremost a dynamic, colorful city that offers her and other Brussels residents a lot of opportunities.

From Bruocsella - a settlement in a swamp created by the course of the Senne - Brussels grew into the beating heart of Belgium and Europe.

One thing is certain: Brussels leaves no-one cold, and remains food for endless conversation. Lies Van Ginderachter wants to stir up these conversations with her designs.

Sabine and Peter moved from West Flanders to Brussels and live since more than 20 years in Woluwe-Saint-Pierre where they have a artisan butcher’s shop @_peter_sabine and they make beautiful plans @chateaulacrou .
︴
The Penta n°03 is the perfect translation of their love for Brussels and craftsmanship.
︴
Every Penta, wooden or marble, has a different look, texture or pattern.
If possible, I try to go to my customers and let them choose the Penta they want. 
Or welcome at my place!

Hearing about Sonian Wood Coop through a good friend, thanks @tisso , was the best gift ever.
︴
I already had a prototype of the Penta n°03 in oak but I was still looking for the perfect partner in crime. I dreamed of a wooden cutting board made out of wood of the Sonian Forest but didn’t know where to start.
︴
Shortly after I met Stephan of @sonianwoodcoop the first prototypes were ready, thanks to his beautiful hands-on mentality.
︴
Apart from the laser cutting by @ateliercnc , the Penta n°03 cutting board was totally produced by Sonian Wood Coop, from the raw wood to the oiling finish.

Don’t be scared of scars 🔪
︴
What to do with the Penta n°03 is totally up to you. Would you rather use it as a cutting board, a serving plate or a statement piece?
︴ 
Don’t be afraid to let it live, the stains and scars make it personal, just like all of you beautiful people who make Brussels the unique and diverse city it is. Thanks to all of you, Brussels is a beautiful mix of cultures and ideas. A vibrant, colourful city.
