Burnt wood is a Japanese technique dating from the 18th century. Commonly called “Yakisugi” or “Shou-Sugi-Ban”, it consists of protecting the wood by burning its surface. Re-used by many architects and designers, this method gives wood several characteristics: once burned, the material becomes more resistant to fire, xylophagous insects and fungi. In addition, this method is eco-responsible since it does not require any chemicals.
In addition to the stated virtues, this technique offers creations a particular aesthetic. The surface of the wood can take on an infinite number of different textures.
