BONE

 

Wooden flooring born from the re-interpretation of historic herringbone parquet. By imagining a formal stretch, the strips have taken on new proportions and dimensions.
Above all, the width of the slat brought to 43 mm determines a very strong texture because the tight repetition of the bands makes the natural surface chromatically variegated.
Bone was designed in contrast to current research (2010) on wooden floors, where it seems that the manufacturing companies are no longer working on the format -and therefore on the design- but only on the finishes.
Therefore, the idea of ​​the continuous plan of the large table formats is replaced by the idea of ​​texture, of a formal and material matrix recovered from traditional craftsmanship. It is no longer the rarefaction and abstraction of the unique surface that is an expression of contemporaneity, but rather the texture of the organic substance which, as unrepeatable and always different, represents a new orientation of luxury.

 

The system consists of 3 types of slats with heads cut at 45 ° with progressive lengths of 900, 1200, 1500 and 1800 mm. The width of each list is 43 mm. The typological and dimensional differentiation of the strips allows unlimited compositional combinations with innumerable trampling textures, of a straight and orderly character (traditional) or graphically fragmented (contemporary).
