Our first performance on living interiors – the event for bathrooms, flooring, wallcoverings, and lighting at imm cologne – was starting promising. The German design council has selected our cross-cut veneer for its presentation of the “trends Floors & Walls”. We thank all our visitors for the good communication! Our silver edition is hip. That’s for sure!
The market for sunburnt silver-grey weathered wood is increasing. Mehling & Wiesmann has been answering this trend with its new silver edition. Basically we can silver all wood species on basis of Gallic acid colourings. Thicker veneers up to 2, 4 mm are silver coloured through and through. The colour of our silver veneers is not always exactly the same – just like after fuming. You will find it in the cell walls what makes an open porous veneer with a natural character and silvery brightness. The Asian market accepted our silver veneers first – right after launching at Interzum 2013. Now some Italian furniture makers are enthusiastic about it and present parts of their collection in silver-grey on the Milan Furniture Fair next April.
Dear readers of our staff portraits – this time you get to know what happens with the lumber after it was sawn with our log band saw. Walter Meister tells you what he is doing with the lumber and which events he likes to remember.
