All rocks on our earth consist of minerals. Their structure tells the story of millions of years of geological processes. The bizarre shapes and iridescent colours of their crystals adorn many a piece of jewellery. Ground into fine pigments, we have always used them to add colour accents to wood.
A healthy earth is the source of all growth and flourishing. Looking at warm earth tones creates connection and confidence. Depending on which elements predominate in the soil, the colour spectrum ranges from golden sandy tones to dark brown, almost black earth tones.
Should you be unable to find your desired colour tone here, we will find it together in a personalised meeting. We are happy to advise.
Nature is the source of inspiration for our tones. Our colours can be introduced into the wood through a complex, multistep colouring process involving smoking, deep cleaning and the use of natural essences. Pigments penetrate deep into the pores of the wood which creates an incomparable effect on the surface. An effect which endures. That is what sets it apart from superficially applied colours.
If the right colour tone for your project is not already in our collection, we will find it together. If you already have a sense of the colour direction or material with which the wood colour should fit, we will generate the appropriate colour tone in wood. And what’s special about this: through years of refinement, we offer unparalleled colour possibilities using only natural pigments and natural processes.
The characteristics and composition of the wood are critical to the colour impression. These depend on the location of the tree, its genetics, the growing region and growth period as well as the nutrient content of the soil. The environmental influences that have affected the tree over the course of its life influence the grain of the veneer, which in turn influences the effect of the colour. Making each product truly unique.
By using an appropriate pre-treatment, the wood becomes more resistant to staining and the colour tone more stable. This approach retains the beneficial features of the wood: warmth, elasticity, and vapour permeability; perfect for regulating the indoor climate.
