Elements of natural materials can be experienced in a home’s interior with furniture made of solid wood. In use and popular for thousands of years, wood is currently experiencing a renaissance among connoisseurs of good taste.

The warm reddish brown shades of natural wood grain create a warm atmosphere, the vibe being incomparably lively and grounding at the same time. The individual grain is also a guarantee for uniqueness. But what happens when wood becomes so thin that it becomes completely flexible and translucent? This idea allows many new applications for the natural and traditional, recyclable material. There seem to be no limits to the imagination of creative minds.
The Dresdner lamp makers, Dreizehngrad, produce new types of lampshades made of real wood veneer from cherry, walnut and maple wood. The unique annual rings and colours make every lampshade unique. The light shines through the wafer-thin veneer, accentuating the structure of this precious material. Veneer lamps made of real wood are the mood lifters among lamps because the naturally grained veneer lets the light gently glow in its beautiful warm tones. Layed across one another in several layers, veneer strips provide fascinating patterns and immerse rooms in an atmospheric play of light and shadow.

Next step: Shoes

Even more unconventionally, the designers of NAT-2 were inspired by the possibilities of the wafer-thin cut wood laminate.

They discovered that wood works as a vegan alternative to conventional leather. With the Wooden Sneakers, wood is applied on top of organic cotton and vector lasered to create a smooth and delicate surface. Every single sneaker gets its individual and natural wood texture through the unique technique. Even a hint of a wood scent remains.

The company nat-2™, which was founded in 2007 by Sebastian Thies, a sixth generation shoemaker, has already received several design awards for its innovative ideas.
