CAREFULLY CHARRED FLOORS COMBINING JAPANESE TRADITION WITH MODERN INNOVATION
Carbonised Collection Clinches ‘Best Hard Flooring’ at Living etc Style Awards 2023
A contemporary twist on the traditional Japanese wood burning process that results in Yakisugi, using fully restored antique and new woods. This ancient process always involves the use of an open fire or controlled flame to char the wood before cooling, cleaning and treating it with natural oils to create a dark visual style and uniquely tactile feel.
Grasping Yakisugi is incredibly challenging, but our artisans assure that each piece is carefully charred to perfection. Once the wood is charred, we set to work on the surface, which is much more malleable post-charring. This allows our artisans to heavily brush the surface, removing soft summer growth and some harder winter growth, creating sculptural contours in a variety of mineral and organic tones. Brutalist design meets wooden flooring.
We then finish these reclaimed and new wood floors by hand with our Naked Skin Lacquer or Restoration Oil finishes. Easily maintained with our Floor Care System 1.
Our award-winning Carbonised now features an ever-evolving collection of charred and weathered tones. Choose from the natural wonder Cinnabar, inky black Zircon, ethereal white Pearl, and piquing pink Garnet – all of which are new arrivals in the Carbonised world.
