EVORIO – History hidden in the wood
As opposed to the Bog Oak, we are quite a young team. Yet as long as we can remember, we have always been interested in unique things, one of the kind in every sense of the word. There must be a story behind these things, a soul to them which is as fascinating as they are themselves. That is why the history hidden in our furniture bewitches us with its charm the most.
The wood which has for thousands of years been lying at the bottom of a river, underground or under layers of peat, without access to oxygen and light, is now full of remarkable properties, indeed. In our hands, these features become timeless. We always treat the wood with respect it deserves, for it’s one of the rarest and most precious wood sorts known to the mankind. Hand working, traditional techniques, passion and patience put into work allow us to find the story hidden behind the wood and present it to you…
Bog Oak ( oak wood of Quercus Robur L. or Quercus petrae L. ) – Having been for thousands years lying at the bottom of a river, underground or under layers of peat, without access to oxygen and light, but at the same time subjected to the long-lasting influence of the iron chloride, the wood gains a unique colour and immunity. In this way, the oak wood becomes one of the most precious, and on the other hand most difficult materials to work with ever known.
Being so rare and difficult, yet so remarkable and graceful, the oak wood is strongly desired in the whole world up to this today.
Research made with the dendrochronology and radiocarbon dating technique 14C indicate that the wood used by the Bog Oak team is approximately 600-6500 years old.
