Whether we walk on it barefoot, stroke it with our fingertips or enjoy feasting our eyes on its markings – wood is a material like no other. A material that speaks to us through all our senses. It is a part of the outdoor world placed in our homes, connecting us with nature and with the original architecture of densely forested lands. Even when it has been turned from a tree into something else, it still remains a living thing. Its cells absorb moisture and then release it again slowly. Wood thus has a balancing effect on the room environment and improves one’s health.As a living material, wood has another excellent property: With the passage of time it gains even greater character whilst retaining its shape. The sun’s rays will produce colour changes that are entirely natural. Small traces are left behind as evidence of the passage of time. The grace of patina. All these things contribute to the visual impact of a room. It really is an incredibly beautiful thing.
