Burned wood is achieved through an ecological method of wood processing that will bring a unique aesthetic touch, wherever you choose to use it.
The history of burned wood
A few centuries ago, in the Land of The Rising sun, wood was the primary raw material used in house building in the countryside, as well as in the city. The fear of potential fires igniting and torching the entire settlement determined The Japanese to look for a solution to protect their homes. They discovered that fire was not an enemy but that it could be used as a partner – so they started to burn the surface of the cedar floorboards. The result was charred wood, very resilient in the face of extreme weather conditions, rotting and insect attacks, as well as fire.
Since 1700 and up until today, Europeans have used this fireproof quality of burned wood not just to build and consolidate houses, as well as other objects. They started to char the inferior side of wooden poles in order to protect them against the degradation that would be brought on by ground burial. Even boats, made up entirely out of wood in the past, were burned to become more resistant.
A logical and functional response to a real problem from a past time turned into an innovative and ecological design today.
Even today, using burned wood offers a lot of benefits.
