All our wood is certified, which means forest management is in line with a responsible and global agenda that takes into account trees and people across the planet. This certification ensures that foresters never cut down more trees than the forest can regenerate. The certification also ensures that forest workers have decent working conditions and wages, and that local communities benefit socially and economically.  


Ash is hard and heavy and has excellent bending properties. In prehistoric times it was used for chariots, ladders and spears, among other things. Ash is our lightest wood, with a delicate and beautiful look that really comes into its own when the bookcases are placed side by side so that the light colours complement and give depth to each other. Ash is also available in a black-stained version, where the grain is discreetly visible and gives a textured and warm look to the black finish.


Oak trees can live up to 100-150 years before they are felled. Like ash, oak is a heavy and hard wood with good bending properties. It has a warm, golden glow and a delicate grain that makes it a popular material for making furniture. Oak has historically been used for buildings, bridges and roof structures, and because of its high tannic acid content it also has good properties for curing leather and storing wine.



Walnut varies in colour from greyish tones to deep dark brown. It is a hard and strong wood, and the American walnut trees we use can grow to 40 metres tall with a diameter of one metre. Walnut is an exclusive species as hand sorting is necessary as the colour can vary from very light to very dark, but it gives an incomparable look.


Deep and dark. Exotic and exclusive. Light and lively. Mahogany has always been an exclusive and elegant wood. Our mahogany comes from Africa and has a deep, reddish-brown tone with a unique play of colours. Mahogany is often used for musical instruments, where it gives a warm, round and rich sound. The history of design includes many examples of mahogany furniture by iconic cabinetmakers, including the famous Kaare Klint.


Bamboo is not actually a tree, but a fast-growing grass that has an extreme ability to absorb CO2. It undergoes a lengthy process in which the bamboo is cut up, dried, glued together and compressed into a strong cross-fibre sheet. The bamboo slats support each other, creating a strong, sustainable and stable material that reflects the skill and craftsmanship behind its production and has a beautiful graphic expression.



The beech is widely regarded as Denmark's national tree, and the Danish word for beech is one of the oldest in our language. It has a yellower tone than ash and oak, but has many of the same characteristics. Beech is hard and strong, and the structure appears very uniform, with fine pores and widely spaced growth rings. Beech trees can be felled when they are around 30 years old, but many are not felled until they are between 90 and 120 years old. 



Birch is a typical Scandinavian wood species with a uniform surface and is often used for plywood production. Plywood consists of several layers glued together in a matrix, with each layer at right angles to the previous layer. This technique results in a strong sheet with high dimensional stability, which is almost impossible to bend and is highly resistant to cracking and warping
