Solid wood & Wood-based materials

Timber

We only use hardwoods from sustainable forestry. Approximately 67 % of our wood comes from Central European forests, most of which are located in the regional vicinity of our manufacturers. 33 % of the wood comes from large forest areas in North America (Pennsylvania and Missouri). All woods comply with the FSC and PEFC standards. We currently use ash, oak, American cherry and European and American walnut.

Wood-based materials

Wood-based materials are created by crushing and then joining structural elements of wood. In the process, veneers, strips, sticks, wood wool, chips or fibres are joined together with or without binders. The size and shape ultimately determine the type and properties of the material. The various processes give the materials special mechanical and physical properties which, in addition to their appearance, clearly distinguish them from solid wood. ZEITRAUM uses wood-based materials in particular for various seating shells, the CODE family and the RAIL family with linoleum tabletop.
