It all started with a happy incident. Inspired by the remaining offcuts from our factory designs, the layered wood pieces of the Mosaic TV cupboard form a rhythm, reminiscent of the partition of a pipe organ. Deeply influenced by music within his creative process, Alain van Havre offers a renewed translation of his obsession for movement.
*Please note that wood pieces are unique and may come with natural variations.
All in all, the natural characteristics are called “Medullary Rays” as they are the unique cellular structures found in solid wood (especially in White Oak.) These desired characteristics are drawn out by the type of cut which is known as “Quarter-Sawn.” This type of cut is revered for its beauty, strength, and prevention of warping.
However, other factors including light and shade variations will also enhance the beauty. Despite that, quarter-sawn oak is “a more structurally sound hardwood than flat-sawn oak. It resists cupping, twisting, warping, moisture penetration, and raised grain. One of the most sought-after features of quarter-sawn white and red oak is the flecks and the rays that appear on the face of the boards as a result cutting along the growth rings.”
