Twenty years ago we stumbled upon a wonderful idea for a diffusing material for some lamps we wanted to make for our home; this material was wood veneer.
It wasn’t the first time that a lamp had been made out of wood, but we are the first company to specialise and base all their production on this material.
In fact, it was so important for us that we patented our own eco friendly treatment for this natural material so it could be used in a whole variety of ways.
Timberlite® is the name we have given our treated veneer, a spectacular way of looking at light through wood.
Our veneers are selected to give the best wood grain effects when illuminated and all have been sourced from forests certified by the Forest Stewardship Council - FSC.
Nothing comes close to the beauty of these veneers as a diffusion material and no other veneer treatment gives the strength and the protection to the material with out sacrificing the delicacy and subtleness that this natural material communicates when illuminated.
