Perfect finish. The natural beauty of wood emphasised by the raw colours and manually planing the edges of the board. The superficial simplicity is broken up by the processes imitating repair work – corking of previously removed surface fragments and filled in knots. This is a floorboard which could have been found in the home of a noble craftsman in Albrecht Durer's day. Surface with extra protection by natural oil.
Jean Marc Artisan
Heir to the cabinetmaking art of the legendary French ébénistes of the Loire valley. Like the royal handicraft masters, he gives the items he creates the features of true works of art. Finesse and the best artisanal tradition combine with knowledge about art history and contemporary design. A fascination with wood and traditional methods of working with it is visible in the extraordinary precision of workmanship and the attention to detail in the items bearing his signature.
History in the background
The inspiration behind the line of hand-finished wood floors were the people met during a journey along the trail of castles on the Loire. Their stories led to the creation of a collection which transports the best traditions of the past into the present.
100 % Oak
Floor made wholly of pure raw materials — real wood of the most perfect species. Oak, considered a royal tree, has for centuries been a symbol of durability and strength. More than any other material, it testifies to the prestige and good taste of the interior it adorns.
Particularly painstaking selection of the wood is the basis for creating a collection of floors recommended for the most demanding customers. Unique, artisanal woodworking methods give them a totally unique character which stands out among the other floors available on the market.Excellent woodwork, no renovation necessary
The wood is worked with methods traceable back to the best artisenal traditions. Taking as our starting point the effect achieved by the legendary French ébénistes, we painstakingly selected the natural oils which perfectly emphasise the assets of the wood - its colour scheme and the shape of its knots. Manually applied ageing processes (inc. deliberate mechanical damage), give the floor a unique character and mean it does not need renovation.Underfloor heating
Thanks to the use of a cross structure, the floors are perfectly suited for use over water or electric underfloor heating. Use of traditional woodworking methods and natural raw materials means that they are also recommended for people susceptible to allergies.
Multilayer flooring with a precise cross layer construction of oak guarantees unbelievable durability and strength. The oak flooring is hardly-ignitable and its top layer is 5 mm thick. Both features make the product suitable to be installed in e.g. restaurants, clubs, hotels or shopping centers.
