The hallmark of birch is its slender, delicate frame robed in the white of its bark. Among trees, this chalky covering is unique. Birch bark, with its characteristic surface and supple leathery pliable nature, has been beloved by craftspeople for centuries. In traditional craftsmanship, birch’s renewable skin – natural birch bark – has been worked with for centuries. In many ancient cultures, birch is a healing tree, said to have a range of health benefits.
The birch bark is attached to a backboard to enable its properties to be used in modern room designs. For this, the surface is carefully removed and combined with ply to produce 480 mm x 480 mm sheets. For framed solutions, we recommend an MDF backboard which can also be grooved on request for mounting with a separate loose tongue bit.
The panels can be installed flush to one another and relatively easily mounted to a substrate using mounting adhesive and screws. This ease of mounting makes the product perfect for cladding large wall surfaces. However, the natural material is also excellent installed as smaller framed pictures to provide an eye-catching highlight in interior rooms.
The panels’ simple white texture and cool Nordic character are perfect for modern office designs as well as being highly popular for spa facilities and hotel fit-outs.
