The production of Platå
Big section formats of wood are hard to come across, and finding the suitable material proved to be the biggest challenge of this project. For this reason, the material we use might actually change with the supply of blanks in suitable wood. Our wood is dried for 14 weeks in a special kiln to prevent the material from cracking over time.
The sculptural qualities of our objects lead more often than not to complex manufacturing techniques. We make our collection wherever the traditional craft techniques are best kept alive and wherever the required specialized competence is found.
Platå is manufactured in Poland.
The lumber for our second batch of ‘Platå’ is Ash. Ash is a high density hardwood species in the oil-tree family. The wood is strong and elastic at the same time, which makes it a perfect material for baseball bats, hockey sticks, old school tennis rackets and canoe paddles.
A solid piece of wood
Platå is CNC’ed on a 5 axis digital milling machine before it is mechanically grinded, coated with a food safe oil-wax, and then polished by hand.
