In addition to the sustainability benefits that wood offers, its extraordinary and extensive aesthetic versatility are an extra advantage, allowing the material to be aligned with virtually any brand story.
Through our industry-leading decoration facilities, wood can not only convey a natural & rough aesthetic, but also present a refined, soft and opulent personality to your product.
Read below to see how endless colours, shapes and decoration possibilities transform what wood can be for your beauty brand.
We can obtain almost any shape that a customer requires! To do so, the plant has two sections:
The turned wood department
By using turners, circular geometric shapes are possible thanks to "shaping" tools. This industrial process follows the same basic practices used by the artisanal turners of antiguity. The difference is that nowadays the procedure is an industrial process that uses machines and robots that complete the process automatically.
The carved wood department
Compex shapes and irregular geometries are created either with moulding machines or with CNC routing machines. The latter have three interpolated axes allowing them to define and shape a wide array of surfaces. The advanced software used with these machines can create a infinite number of disparate geometric shapes.
Stains and lacquers
There are two different types of colouring that can be applied to wood: stains and lacquers.
Stains are transparent coats and can be used to obtain a wide variety of colours. Depending on the hue, this shading can show the grain of the wood to a greater or lesser degree.
Lacquers are completely opaque and totally cover the grain of the wood. Lacquers used in this fashion, like those used with plastic or aluminium, are available in a full range of colours and provide a uniform finish.
Varnish provides a transparent layer that covers the piece. It acts as protection against rays of light, humidity and other environmental agents. Varnish has the added benefit of filling the wood’s pores and limiting any possible dimensional changes.
This is applied on the last layer of varnish and can be adapted to the requirements of the end product. Normally, the top coat is used to affect the brightness of the end product. The top coat can create a large range of finishes, all the way from a dull, light-absorbing matte to a an incredibly brilliant, high-gloss shine.
Wooden components look incredible in their natural state. Yet, when combined with our suite of decoration possibilities, wood transforms into something disruptive and revolutionary.
Our techniques include pad printing, hot stamping, laser etching and silkscreen printing, each adding another dimension to aesthetic innovation and customisation.
Other more exotic techniques are also available, including wood charring, gold leaf, layering and micro-engraving. Scroll through the slideshow on the right to view some of these techniques come to life.
