raw material

From natural to varnished to laminated wood - we have the right lamp in our range for every taste.
Natural materials such as wood are not only unique due to their different grains, they also create a homely, cozy and at the same time modern atmosphere.


In the manufacture of our lights, the concept of sustainability is in the foreground. We therefore only use high quality wood from responsible and sustainable forestry. We also make sure that the transport route for the materials is kept as short as possible.


The processing of the wood is done carefully by hand. We decidedly refrain from using harmful substances and seal our products with water-based varnishes. In this way we can guarantee the longevity of our products and they can move into any room without hesitation.
