A successful marriage of artisanal furniture making and the precision of digital tools gives flat wood surfaces a sculptural dimension. Used on MDF, this tool-programming technology creates surfaces with various motifs (infinite repetitions of perforations, folds, waves, grooves and so forth). An exaggerated 3-D effect occurs when MDF featuring layers of different colours is ‘carved’ to show high relief. Ideal for architectural applications such as walls, doors and ceilings (also, in some cases, water- and fire-resistant surfaces). Surfaces include veneers, mother-of-pearl and soft textures.
