In German folklore, the maple tree was said to have magical properties. Thresholds made of maple wood were meant to offer protection from witchcraft and maple branches cut on Midsummer's Day were meant to protect you from being struck by lightning. Due to its light colour, this wood is a symbol of purity for the Celts. As well as its almost white colour, its typical characteristics are its undulating fibre pattern, its fine pores and its distinctively uniform structure. For our furniture, we use the sycamore maple, the largest of our indigenous maple trees, which mainly grows in the alpine mountain region and low mountain ranges. Its wood is particularly pure, exceptionally tough and sometimes displays a wave-like fibre orientation, which has an elegant and delicate effect. We get our maple wood from the Bavarian Alps.
