Oak in research
Research of The Hidden Colour of Oak
Design Academy Eindhoven
On this page you can see how the research was translated into a serie of furniture
Will the just colour stay at the surface?
How deep does the colour go into the wood?
Does time influence the colour?
Does it matter on which surface I apply the liquid on?
Will the wood absorb the liquid after some time, and so lower the level of the liquid?
When it will be absorbed, will the colour be darker when exposed longer?
- the deeper inside the wood, the darker the colour?
How to translate the conclusions of the first experiments into a technique or product?
- new multiplex: where the connection between two layers is emphasized by sanding the edge
- wood joints where the joints have contrasting colours in stead of being hidden in the surface
- pattern from wooden shapes, combining light and dark colour
