Wood from sustainably managed forests Birch plywood is a classic material for modern interior design. For the frames of the switch range, birch plywood is used which is five-layered cross-bonded, and therefore particularly strong. The birch originates from sustainably managed forests in Finland and is PEFC-certified. The long, hard Nordic winter only allows trees a short period of growth each year, resulting in very thin and uniform annual rings. This makes the wood especially homogeneous and strong. It was therefore possible to produce such a delicate and yet strong birch plywood for a frame.
Linoleum from renewable raw materials In the recent past, the advantages of linoleum have been rediscovered by designers and architects alike. The material was already developed in 1860 by the English chemist Frederick Walton. In addition to linseed oil, its main component, it composed of natural resin, wood flour and calcium carbonate, as well as colour pigments. Due to its unique material properties, linoleum is ideally suited for use as a frame surface. It is extremely durable and is characterised by its resistance to oils and grease. It has anti-static and slightly antibacterial properties, and it is easy to clean. As a result the frames have a variety of uses and can withstand particularly tough conditions.
