Why is the use of wood a sustainable choice?
Wood, by its own nature, regenerates itself, proving to be the most sustainable material of all. Most of the timber we use in our production dept. comes only from areas subject to managed reforestation, such as that of the European continent. The love for fine wood has always accompanied our company, as an ethical and aesthetical choice, and cares for the quality of life of people and future generations.
What are the advantages of wood?
L’Ottocento selects and processes only solid wood or blockboard, which, in addition to being natural, has high properties of strength, reliability, and solidity. I like to think that wood has two souls: an aesthetic one, linked to its beauty, and an intrinsic one, due to its value as a material. It is a guarantee of refinement and longevity of the furnishings, so much so that each composition can also enjoy a second life, with the possibility of being integrated or modified over time. This is not a secondary aspect, and it further underlines the value of sustainability of wood.
Why is wood a healthy material?
The choice of a skilfully crafted wooden kitchen makes it possible to combine ethical principles and the desire for well-being. Wood is a natural material, where formaldehyde, unlike other artificial compounds, is practically non-existent. Our commitment concretizes in the careful and tailored creation of functional and elegant environments, but most importantly healthy for those who experience them.
