FLAMED OAK VENEER: This is a chipboard panel faced on both sides and on 4 edges with a sheet of oak veneer, carefully selected and applied to obtain an irregular, flamed veneer, slatted effect. The veneer is subjected to a mechanical brushing process before the varnishing cycle to bring out the typical grain of oak wood and set off its characteristic hardness and texture.
DISTRESSED OAK VENEER: its technical features are the same as those of the flamed oak veneer panel except for the fact that this veneer has some deep knots and cracks that are protected by the varnish applied during the varnishing cycle.
“FIRST-PATINA” FIR WOOD: (Tabacco, Chalet and River fir wood) are mostly sourced from Alpine regions and reclaimed by dismantling mountain huts, hay barns and old houses. These buildings, whose external façades were constructed from fir wood planks, have been exposed to extreme weather conditions every day for at least sixty to seventy years. Every day snow, wind, hail, rain and sun have left their mark on the surface of each plank, etching the passing of time into them. The holes of the nails used to join the planks or hang up tools, the rough texture of the veins dug out and consumed, and the knots and splits are the indelible scars left behind by the history of the passing years.
