Rustic oak wood.
Rustic oak is known for its natural imperfections that give the material an authentic look. We also strive for that effect in our wooden bed. We carefully select our wooden beams, where small imperfections and color differences are welcome, but larger deviations are excluded. This creates a natural result, without gross distractions.
To prevent the wood from working, it has been artificially dried to a low moisture content of 8 to 12 percent. The wood is then provided with the ideal finishing. First it was sanded, then the sharp parts were neatly rounded and finally the beams were coated with a matt varnish, which also offers some protection. The result? A tough and robust, yet refined bed frame.
The steel construction of the bed is the result of a precise automated cutting process, minimizing costs and environmental impact.
How it works? To start with, we place a 3 millimeter thick sheet metal of the very solid S35 structural steel under the laser machine. The machine then cuts the structural steel to an accuracy of one tenth of a millimeter. In this way we waste as little material as possible. The separate steel elements were then deburred and modeled in the correct shape. For a sleek end result, the steel construction has been given a matte powder coating, which also forms a beautiful and striking addition to the rustic wood.
