The ancient Greeks believed that there were four elements that everything was made up of: earthwater, air, and fire. The idea that these four elements – earth, water, air, and fire – made up all matter was the cornerstone of philosophy, science, and medicine for two thousand years. The four elements were even used to described the four temperaments a person could have, and Hippocrates used the four elements to describe the four “humors” found in the body.


    Bring a touch of the ancient philosophy to your home with the Four Elements set - featuring a symbol for each of the four elements in each of our luxury wood finishes. 


    • Earth - Walnut
    • Air - Birch
    • Fire - Black Painted Oak
    • Water - Oak


    Made from our sustainable sourced, high quality 6mm or 9mm thick Birch plywood, Oak veneer, Walnut veneer and black painted Oak veneer.


    This set of 4 are available in a range of size options

    • 20cm (7.9") high
    • 30cm (11.8") high
    • 45cm (17.7") high
    • 60cm (23.6") high

    The size refers to the height/diameter of each seperate element. 


    Customisable - We can also make the elements in a different mix of wood types if you would prefer - e.g. two black and two oak, or all walnut etc. Just leave a note when you order to say if you would like anything different. If no note is left, we will assume that you would like the pieces in the wood options stated (as per the photos).


    As with all of our wooden products - we are working with natural materials and so each item may be unique in terms of the wood shade and grain. 


    We supply some strips of a strong double sided 3m tape with orders, and with larger items we supply wall tacks - these can be used to mount the pieces to you wall if you wish, or you may prefer to use an alternative way of mounting them.
