The wood we use
As part of our DNA, we work with natural materials with durable properties that are sourced responsibly.
The majority of our wood is FSC certified and we expect all of it to be, by the end of 2024. We take pride in offering furniture crafted from FSC-certified wood, symbolizing not just quality and longevity but also supporting ethical and sustainable forestry.
FSC (The Forest Stewardship Council) is a global non-governmental organization dedicated to promoting responsible forest management worldwide and has become the most widely respected forest certification system globally. To earn FSC certification, wood products must meet stringent environmental, social, and economic criteria, ensuring their sustainability. FSC-certified wood is traceable back to its source, providing transparency and traceability throughout the supply chain.
We use water-based lacquer for all our wooden products. This choice reduces the emission of harmful substances significantly, leading to better indoor and outdoor air quality and improved working conditions during production. The water-based lacquer is almost translucent, but protects the woods from stains.
Types of wood
In the crafting of our furniture we use oak and ash as our primary wood choices due to their exceptional qualities.
Besides its durability, ash stands out for its flexibility, making it a good choice for crafting curved furniture pieces that require bending without compromising strength. Ash wood exhibits remarkable shock resistance, making it suitable where impact resistance is essential.
Shock-resistant refers to the wood's ability to absorb sudden impacts or shocks without being easily damaged. This is particularly valuable in applications where the wood might experience sudden force or impact, such as in furniture or structures subjected to heavy use, potentially protecting them from damage or breakage. Ash's shock resistance can contribute to its longevity and durability.
Renowned for its strength and durability, oak's robust nature makes it highly resistant to wear and tear. Despite being a hardwood, oak is relatively easy to work with, facilitating detailed designs and finishes. Its ability to readily accept stains and finishes allows for a wide range of design expressions.
An often overlooked aspect of wood veneer, in comparison to solid wood, is its efficient use of resources making it a more eco-friendly choice. Veneer optimizes timber usage by efficiently utilizing thin slices to cover larger areas, making use of more parts of the log. This approach significantly reduces waste and essentially means felling less trees.
At the heart of our values is a commitment to responsibly source the materials we use, demonstrating our dedication to sustainable practices and crafting high-quality furniture.
A trusted production partner
All of our wooden furniture is produced by Kvist, renowned for their high-quality wood furniture. Since 2021, they have ensured 100% green electricity derived from renewable sources, including hydropower, wind and solar energy in their production facilities in Denmark and Latvia by using climate certificates. Furthermore, they hold ISO 45001 and ISO 9001 certifications, which represent ISO standards for occupational health and safety management systems. The wood waste from the production is turned into briquettes for heating.
