Wood

Wood as material is deeply rooted in the human civilisation. It is used raw or refined across continents and throughout cultural layers as a basic and natural resource. Wood is in our cultural DNA, it connects us with nature, with our heritage and leads the way to a sustainable future.

The finest ash

With an impressive almost 40 meter height, Ash trees can grow tall, strong and beautiful. Like all other living organisms they depend on the surrounding conditions and develop according to these. Ash wood has excellent strength and a beautiful, vibrant structure.

他の生物と同様に育つ環境に影響を受けながら、アッシュは、全長40メートルにも成長します。木材になっても強く美しく、木目には生き生きとした表情が長く生きた証として現れています。

A slow material

High quality wood is made by nature. It cannot be forced and needs time to grow with beauty and natural strength. It responds to its surroundings and captures the signs of time to become a solid proof of history. We love wood as the unique and giving material it is, and we put an honor in refining it for human use before it one day shall return to nature.

高品質の木材は自然から与えられたものです。自然の力で成長するには時間が必要であり、決して強制することはできません。木は育ってきた環境や、時間を写し取り、その歴史の痕跡を蓄積して育ちます。いつの日か自然に戻るまでの間、このユニークで美しい資源を享受できることに対し光栄に思います。

Upholstery

The solid wood is in natural balance accompanied with a small range of pure textiles and leathers. By proposing all natural materials free from unnecessary chemicals and additives, we wish to show the beauty of nature and inspire users to an all natural choice.

Surface treatments

Wood itself is obviously strong enough to stand both time and use as furniture. To protect the natural surface, ease daily care and nurture the precious material, we use natural soap finish as standard surface finish. This treatment is natural and completely toxic free.
