What do you do with leftover scrap wood? Here in Indonesia, almost everything has a value. Old metal, plastic, cement sacks – these are gathered up and sold to the rosok-rosok, or scrap dealers, who in turn sell them on to foundries, plastic factories and paper mills.
The furniture industry is no exception. In the past, the small offcuts of wood were used as fuel for kitchen fires. But the Indonesian government introduced low cost natural gas to reduce pollution and wood fires are now increasing rare. Ever inventive, a new use for the scrap wood was found.
The small offcuts are sawn, glued onto plywood backing, and then fine-sanded to make amazing wall panelling. Not only is this very environmentally friendly, but because the material is scrap, the cost is very reasonable.
Our wood panelling comes in a variety of patterns, and as well as looking stunning on the wall, it has a marvellous sound absorbing capacity. No longer will your room echo – it cuts down noise and creates a quiet ambiance.
The panels have non-linear ends, so that joints between the panels when installed are hard to detect. Being wood, they are easy to cut to size and mount on the wall. And we can do a variety, of finishes to order as well.
