Not just the choice parts. This is why the widths of the veneers are defined primarily by the characteristics of the tree. We select the individual elements subject to strict quality requirements.
Using our patented drying process, we reduce the moisture content of the wood to increase its natural resilience. This reduces swelling and shrinkage so that the wood remains dimensionally stable. The process intensifies the feel of the wood and the grain can be softly but clearly felt.
Precise hand craftsmanship preserves the lively structure of the wood. Using all our sensitivity, we bring out the unique characteristics of the wood. The wood is planed by hand, not by machine. We can emphasise cracks or blend them out to create a harmonious look to the veneer. We implant specially selected natural material to reinforce the knot holes.
How our surfaces are used depends solely and entirely on the requirements of the designer. In combination with a variety of carrier materials, our individually designed surfaces give a room personality and while fulfilling technical requirements such as acoustics or fire protection.
Thanks to the way that we treat, finish and construct our products, they boast dimensional stability and durability. And they stay that way, even in settings with challenging climates such as spa and wellness areas, yacht interiors or in places with very high or very low humidity. They even stand up to heavy use such as in hotel and airport lobbies.
Over decades of research, we have found unique ways to transfer the colours of nature to wood. Our pigments are grown in plants or minerals. They harmonise with the colouration of the wood, developing the finest nuances, changing over time. In complex recipes requiring numerous production steps, we adapt the original wood colour to the individual colour requirements of our customer.
