In the course of the project, a special technology was developed that uses the natural process of bog oak formation, transfers it to common oak wood in a modernised and sustainable form, and pervades it with the characteristic deep black of the bog.
The potential and relevance of the nature-oriented finishing process lies in its suitability for various materials and applications.
The bog material required for the ecological coating process can be reused. This makes it an effective and more sustainable alternative to chemical dyes.
Cross-material possibilities, such as dyeing different types of wood, leather and other natural textiles, are currently being explored.
Based on a process that has taken centuries to develop, the modern finishing process in our industrialised society is more than ever characterised by its naturalness and originality, which is reflected in the rich, balanced nuances of the material.
