ANTIKE HÖLZER | BOIS ANTIQUES
The quality of antique surfaces is preserved through the recovery of beams and other precious wooden elements. After a careful selection, the most valuable wood is subjected to a meticulous, “hand made” restoration and cleaning, in order to avoid any alteration of the original quality, while removing splinters on surface.
Evaporation treatment is carried out by applying steam to the piece of wood, which absorbs moisture and becomes softer and evens out the colour. Staying in contact with water vapour at over 90° for less than or more than 24 hours allows for colour homogenization and/or colour variation towards darker shades.

Carefully controlled fire burns the wood on the surface: through this technique the wood is charred to create a unique and beautiful finish with unique color. The wood is subsequently brushed to bring out the underlying color, creating a rare texture.
Carving – usually on heat-treated wood – is an original technique , with a combination of mechanical process and handmade work. The union of machine work and craftsmanship of skilled artisans generates unique textures of a strong aesthetic impact.
From our continuous experimentation a new material is born, combining the naturalness of wood with the color and characteristics of the most modern materials for the house. With Harborica® you are free to imagine the solution that best suits your needs as it can be used in the form of veneer or solid wood thanks to the coloring of the entire mass. Harborica® stands out for its naturalness: the coloring treatment intervenes delicately and harmoniously on the wood grain, always guaranteeing the uniqueness of an extremely natural aesthetic. Harborica® is particularly appreciated for its extreme versatility of use, being available invarious formats: solid wood, slats or veneer.
Continuous research and development of new techniques for the recovery of wood has led us to develop this new method of assembling various wood elements. “Mosaic” is the composition technique that our company has optimized for the manufacturing of unique panels, elegant and highly recognizable.
Surface finishes, deep expertise: the uniqueness of a material lies not only in its essence, but also in the competence and care with which you can work it. Finishes developed by our carpenters result in great textures and exclusive surfaces, with an handmade look.
