Darakorn which means The Constellation in Thai, is beautifully allegorized as a sculpture in the night sky. The concept of a Darakorn begins by re-examining and reinterpreting past collections done by Moonler in order to inject fresh perspectives and explore possibilities with products that we are familiar with. Using the same materials, we aim to re-invent our products, weaving a new story that brings about the essence of materials in different aspects. From the moon to the faraway universe, we offer an alternative viewpoint of furniture designs that is of timeless simplicity. Together with the meticulous skills of local artisans, Moonler creates both sculptural furniture and functional sculptures that are for indoor use - creations are characterized by timeless designs and quality materials that create a medley of emotions and ambiance, which is translated from its Creators to the Consumers.

The bench, called 'Salmon', was conceived from an idea we had to make a bench from one, big, single trunk without using any other material. We had been trying to explore a new path that we thought no one had ever gone down before. We later discovered that if the entire trunk was cut at a 45-degree diagonal, vertically, we would end up with two pieces of wood with a right triangular section. The pieces were put together, creating a bench with a buck wider seat. The other piece of wood of the same shape was flipped down to support the bench as its leg. The essence of the piece was derived from how the wood was sliced, which somehow reminds us of making sushi with the pattern of the pine wood being reminiscent of the pattern of sliced fish, hence, the name 'Salmon Bench'.
