Secret d’Atelier unveils his new collection  ”Bois Brûlé”  inspired by the Japanese ancestral technique Shou-sugi ban. The advantage of this technique is that it protects the wood naturally by carbonization.

The boards are perfectly protected against UV, weather and insects and become absolutely immune due to the resistant surface. Lire la suite…
