NORWEGIAN WOOD: THE COLLECTION OF NATURAL VENEERS

5 selected veneers
in 4 front models

THE IMPERFECT BEAUTY
OF NATURE

The collection evokes the simplicity, unique character and imperfections of nature. It's made out of exclusively natural veneers. The endless variety of patterns are the work of nature: knots, grains and colour shades combined create one-of-a-kind imperfect beauty.

THE UNPRE­DICTABILITY OF NATURE

Natural veneer retains the properties of wood and just like in nature every tree is different, the veneer produced from that tree will also be different in each case. There is no perfect tree. Imperfections occurring in the material are not a defect, but a natural feature emphasizing the characteristics of the wood.

THE VENEER SELECTION

For this collection, we chose oak, walnut, and birch veneers. The color of the veneer will differ between particular orders and, as a result, we cannot guarantee its repeatability.

Natural birch

The brightest of our veneers, white and pale yellow in colour. Produced from birch, which is also used to manufacture plywood. We use a flat grain veneer that retain tree rings, hence its appearance may be described as “plywood.”

Natural oak

The most classic kind of oak, appreciated for the beauty of the flat grain and a discreet, rustic nature. Exceptionally strong and solid. Resistant to scratches, fading, and splinting. We use a veneer with a large flat grain, letting nature surprise us with the intensity of the pattern in each batch.

Smoked Oak collection Norwegian Wood - for IKEA Metod kitchen and Pax cabinets

Smoked oak

An oak veneer, with the colour ranging from medium to dark brown. This is natural oak that has been subjected to a long-term treatment with ammonia, which made it darker. We use veneers with a straight vertical grain. Lighter streaks and sapwood may occur.

Due to the unique process of obtaining that color and the fact that Smoked oak sheets are difficult to process, there may be occasional edge chippings.

Bog oak

The most sophisticated of our veneers, dark brown in colour, with a large flat grain.

Produced from wood that is between 400 and 4,000 years old. The material is obtained from oaks felled by natural phenomenons that remained underwater for hundreds of years. As a result of all the years of reacting with iron-containing water, the wood acquired a dark, nearly black colour.

The colouring of this veneer is natural, we don't stain it. This is why the colour and its intensity will differ depending on the batch, rarely being purely black.

Due to the unique process of obtaining that color and the fact that Bog oak sheets are difficult to process, there may be occasional edge chippings.

MODELS OF
VENEERED FRONTS

BASE

The fronts are based on birch plywood covered with natural veneer. Fronts, as well as all panels and elements, are 18 mm thick.

FINISH

A veneer is a thin decorative slice of fine wood. Their edges may be visible, exposing the birch plywood cross section, or being fully veneered. Veneering works better than solid wood in itself as it’s more suitable for manufacturing.

PROTECTION

All fronts are protected with lacquer that properly preserves the veneer, at the same time allowing for retaining the wood’s natural structure.

Pure model

Pure

Basic fronts that can be combined with both push-open mechanism and custom handles.

This model is available on blockboard (pine solid wood strips) covered with a veneer from each side or on plywood with visible edges exposing the cross section of the plywood.
