What is Shousugiban?
We offer trendy, stylish and modern products made of wood – which distinguish themselves by their special features. They are finished with the Shousugiban (Yakisugi) treatment. This is a technique that has been in use in Japan for centuries, which grants the wood several additional positive characteristics as well as a unique texture. With that our products are the ideal choice for all those who are looking for products that distinguish themselves from the mainstream – and manage to convince in terms of quality as well. Our products are durable, low-maintenance eco-friendly and carbon neutral.
Why Shousugiban (Yakisugi) is so special
The correct name for this technique is “Yakisugi” although Shousugiban is more commonly used in the west, based on an originally incorrect translation. Regardless of its name the technique itself is of course identical. The surface of the treated wood is slightly charred without burning the wood. This leads to carbonization, through which the wood gains a unique surface structure and several other positive qualities. Shousugiban wood is:
- Water repellant
- Robust and longer lasting
- Equipped with a natural protection against insects and mold
The base material for our Shousugiban procedure is the Japanese cypress. The use of other kinds of woods is possible, but the Japanese cypress has several desirable characteristics. Therefore we offer our clients the original from Japan. Perfectly suited for everyone who doesn’t want to compromise on their Shousugiban (Yakisugi) products.
Shousugiban (Yakisugi): High quality, climate – and eco-friendly
The unique appearance of Shousugiban (Yakisugi) is already commonly used in western countries, though often not in combination with real timber, but as an imitation on the surface level of alternative materials. We actually work with the original raw material instead, exactly as it is used in Japan. Since this material is sustainable wood, it naturally has a very good carbon footprint. Since Shousugiban (Yakisugi) doesn’t require any chemicals for its treatment, each of our products additionally doesn’t harm the environment. Shousugiban (Yakisugi) is an ideal choice for people who prefer natural products.
