A prominent political party appointed York-based office furniture manufacturer Eborcraft to supply a new suite of oak-veneered furniture for its conference room. To meet the specification, which encompassed a 20-seater boardroom table and two matching credenzas, Eborcraft recommended its Zenith range for its design details and flexibility. Although Zenith is normally supplied with a veneer of quarter-cut wood to give an unusual contemporary appearance, Eborcraft met the client’s requirement for a more formal look by finishing the furniture with a crown-cut oak veneer instead.

The union of the rigidity of wood and the flexibility of textile has allowed the Wood-Skin team to develop a new composite material, perfect for complex and changing projects. Wood-Skin is a malleable product that’s strong and has a high-end aesthetic, allowing the user to realise unconventional structures, impossible to achieve with traditional building techniques. This way, wood becomes a fabric, able to be shaped into many forms, simultaneously retaining its structural and aesthetic integrity. The high strength textile and wood combination makes Wood-Skin extremely tough, yet manageable and malleable.
Offering a combination of practical and individual ergonomics, the Esencia task chair is able to adapt quickly to the demands of multiple users in flexible working conditions. The chair’s synchronous mechanics centre on a 3D pressure-point spring unit, identifying the weight of the user and relaying the intensity of pressure from seat to backrest. A self-adjusting tension mechanism, coupled with synchronised movement, ensures permanent contact between user and backrest, creating the optimum distribution of pressure in every possible position.
Natural Touch from Kronospan allows designers to specify a genuine wood surface without the higher costs of exotic woods and veneers.

Natural Touch gives designers the option of a natural and intimately tactile wood texture, but with a durability, flexibility and consistency of colour and grain.
