Specific, solid wood properties of the furniture-making timbers we process

Solid wood is a genuinely natural product and each area demonstrates a unique structure and colour. Delicate branches, cracks, intergrown areas and overlaps demonstrate the material's authenticity. Each section of solid wood is a unique, natural product dominated by the location of the tree as well as weather and ground conditions. Solid wood feels good – spreading a healthy living atmosphere with a pleasant scent and a nice feel.

Solid wood furniture creates an ideal living atmosphere. The material has antibacterial properties and prevents electrostatic dust charges. Solid wood helps fight allergies, is unpolluted and natural. We exclusively procure our timber raw materials from sustainably run forestry businesses.

Solid beech heartwood

We use core boards from the heart of the beech trunk with partially truncated piths. These open piths, which crack during drying, with their brown-coloured edges and intergrown splay knots, dominate the character of this unique type of wood. Beech heartwood is hardwood with a tendency to slightly warp, even after having been processed professionally. Surfaces remain relatively stable in colour, but may develop a more yellow shade depending on the light intensity.

Oak heartwood nature

Our oak heartwood nature exclusively consists of core planks made from oak trunks as only this type of wood provides the desired, typical properties, such as core splits and horn knots.

Oak heartwood umato

Planks of wood are first selected from our oak trunk core range for manufacturing our core oak surfaces. These core planks show the typical characteristics, such as core splits and wing loads. The assorted products are then stored before drying for several days in a special chamber are subjected to a smoking process there. During this process, the wood is imbued and gain an even dark colouring. The character of old oak logs emerges.

Solid reef beech

For reef beech, we exclusively use core boards from the heart of the beech trunk with partially truncated piths. These open piths, which crack during drying, with their brown-coloured edges and intergrown splay knots, dominate the character of this unique type of wood.

Wild oak

In the case of wild oak, we process oak wood that has a particularly natural colour spectrum. It has a striking, brownish, clearly defined and expressive grain. Small knots and innate deviations in colour are what make this wood unique.

Wild nut

Hartmann uses is a special selection of American walnut. It is characterised by its strong natural features, such as its branches that have grown together, core tubes and core cracks. These natural characteristics are actively selected and contribute to the wood‘s aesthetic effect.
