Hakwood champions using natural material above any other for longevity and strength in architecture and design.

When specifying surface materials for an interior design scheme, both aesthetics and functionality must be considered in equal measure.

With an overwhelming number of materials, textures, styles and colours to choose from, the mere process of making the selection is an unavoidable peril for anyone in the position to choose. However, a sure way to count on a scheme’s longevity is to whittle the selection process down to natural materials: selected well, natural materials can be guaranteed to be durable and stylish alike.

Hakwood is built upon the enduring trend towards high quality, natural wood materials in the architectural and interior design sectors.

In recent times, the manufacturer has recognised that an increasing number of interior design projects are incorporating wood in surprising and creative ways. Naramata Cabin (pictured), on the waterfront of Lake Okanaga, Canada, is a prime example of this. Hakwood Duoplank was used to cover the ceiling, mirroring the planks of the flooring below to provide a natural, summerhouse cabin aesthetic with a contemporary twist.

Based in the Netherlands, Hakwood’s exclusive finishes and bespoke options are made possible by collaborating with top designers and architects across the world. Specialising in traditionally durable European oak, Hakwood considers the species the ideal choice for applying a diverse variety of surface treatments, textures, and colours. As customers continue to apply flooring in imaginative ways, Hakwood has recognized a demand for further decorative applications of wood in interior design schemes.

Hakwood has subsequently extended their product range to meet the growing demand for their engineered European oak Duoplank. Marrying the timelessness and durability of wood with a contemporary geometric aesthetic, Hakwood’s newly released ‘Wall Tiles” enable architects and designers to create bespoke feature walls. A show-stopping feature in themselves, Wall Tiles make even more of an impact when used in conjunction with complementary wood flooring.

Edwin Hak, product designer and developer at Hakwood, explains: “We enjoy co-creating with architects and designers. With our new ‘Wall Tiles,’ architects and designers can really let their creativity run free. We have a number of standard designs in our collection, but it is always possible to create something bespoke that responds to a unique design brief.”

A product as applicable in the most contemporary and classic of schemes- Hakwood Wall Tiles, like more archetypal wood surfaces, testify to the he endless interior design possibilities wood surfaces can stage, in any interior. The continued demand for wood in interior design is proof of the material’s durability and steadfast allure. The well-known practical and ecological benefits of wood are in accord with the psychological benefits of incorporating natural wood surfaces into interior design schemes. Incorporating natural materials in interior spaces elicits a sense of natural warmth and texture. Given the way in which wood gracefully ages and wears, it is no surprise that quality hardwood surfaces continue to endure.
