Wood properties

Wood is a natural product

 

A woodloops product is always unique. Fluctuations in color, knots and cracks are all natural characteristics. Deviations between exhibition pieces and delivered objects are a sign of quality, testifying to the natural origin of the materials and the natural processes of growth. Despite the careful selection of our timber based on durability, wood is a living material that adapts to humidity. That’s why products from woodloops help maintain a good indoor climate in your living spaces.

Other materials

Besides wood, we also uses materials such as stainless steel, felt, glass or leather to set design accents. We use organically tanned cowhide. Oiling the leather particularly highlights its natural texture. Stainless, brushed V2A steel is used for the stainless steel applications. The matte finish not only gives the steel a modern look but it’s also weather resistant.
