Searching for meaningful and timeless solutions makes living and working a worthwhile experience. Sarah Maier turned her passion into a form of art. She develops creative design with wood veneer.

 

Elegant matched veneer on an attractive piece of furniture is no coincidence. The search for the veneer tree used to make each and every piece of furniture like the proverbial search for the needle in the haystack: Only around 200 wood species can be used for the production of veneer – and there are around 40,000 varieties worldwide. And only a few conceal the fine structures required for veneer inside them. Years of experience are needed to recognise the potential of a tree.

 

Only experts, who have spent years examining the individual look and the resulting deductible properties of trees, can recognise the “inner values” of the timber. It is also important to consider which veneer pattern the individual sections of a tree could be most suitable for. An overall picture is crucial for deciding whether or not to cut a tree down.
