Modern solid-wood for the production of furniture
We use following wood species for our extensive solid-wood collection:

Red-Core-Beech – a material with a unique character
Solid-wood furniture have many different faces because of the natural raw material wood. This applies in a very special way to the red-core-beech.
At the age of approximately 100 to 120 years it is possible that within the beech a wood-specific process is activated, in which auxiliary substances are transformed into coloured ingredients by infiltrating oxygen. From this transformation develops the red core, which makes the wood so very special and unique.
This colour-change demonstrates in an impressive way the growth of this wood over many years and decades. At the same time it gives the wood a spirited and individual character.
The domestic red-core-beech combines the technical qualities of a beech with singular and fancy beauty. The specific workmanship allows every piece of furniture thus it is from the same wood species to be so completely different from each other. Every one is nature’s unicom. Furniture build from red-core-beech are able to set appealing accents in every living space with their warm elegance and gorgeous design.
The special attribute of this wood requires a specific manufacturing. As one of the first German producer we manufacture furniture from red-core-beech since 2002. Our long-term experience as a solid-wood manufacturer and particular our special manufacturing process allow us to handle this valuable material carefully.
You can find more information about this material in the brochure of the German timber promotion fund.
Alder (Western Red Alder)
The alder or the western red alder grows along the pacific coast of North America; its range reaches in the south until California and in the north through Canada almost all the way to Alaska. Though the occurrence extends only to an approx. 70 km broad strip from the coast to the mountain range on a height of approx. 1,500 m above mean sea level. The tree grows best on a profound soil, particularly also at riverbanks. As a single tree it stands in company with other deciduous trees like maple, cottonwood and willows and with fir wood like spruce, hemlock and Douglas fir.
Western red alder is a mid-sized, straight and deep-rooted tree. Usually it reaches a modest height of 9 to 18m and a calliper of 30 to 60 cm.
Freshly cut alder wood has a pale colour, but with the impact of air and light it changes into a bright orange-brown colouring. The wood has a delicate structure, but does not indicate a distinct draft (drawing). The core hardly varies from the wide and light sapwood.
In comparison to the European alder the western red alder is substantially more delicately in growth, nearly free of pith and from a colouring point of view has a more even overall picture.
We use the western red alder to produce the program PRATO.
The domestic oak is with a percentage of approximately 8% of the whole German forest area - right after the German beech - the most important native deciduous wood. At the same time it counts to the most valuable wood species.
Oaks are extremely longevity and belong to the oldest growing German trees. An age of 500 to 800 years is not unusual for those trees.
Frequently mentioned as the classic German tree, the oak gains a stronger growing meaning. Formally imagined as “folksy” and “dark”, today it is a modern and bright material.
We use oak to manufacture our program PRATO.
The term “wild” oak or “branch” oak is an artificial word. It does not deal with a special wood or a mysterious oak species. This indication rather serves us to point out a special sorting of the oak.
We select trees with preferably many branches that grow at the edge of the forest or at a very shadowy position.
Typical characteristics of a “wild” oak are the branches (plenty and in many different shapes and accumulations) and the colour differences.
