PraegenA lasting impression
For her graduation project Hanne developed a new process to imprint wood. By using a rolling technique, patterns can be imprinted permanently on the wood’s surface. Considerate of preserving the integrity of the material and also cheaper than milling, this technique creates a unique surface texture that is extremely pleasant to the touch. For Vij5, Hanne designed a set of two boards based on this unique process. By imprinting simple yet distinguished patterns on the elegant grain of pear wood, the boards develop an unprecedented depth. While the imprinted side is used for serving, the other side provides a robust cutting board. The circular handles are perfect for carrying or hanging the boards on the wall.
