To ensure exceptional performance, Domus has selected one single species – European Oak (Quercus robur) – renowned for its inherent strength and quality. Sourced from responsibly managed forests in Europe, this fine oak grows slowly, creating an extremely dense, tall and straight timber; robust, consistent and reliable. And naturally, it’s FSC® 100%.
In the heart of the forest, these majestic specimens are felled with care, then expertly transformed. Utilising generations of skill and experience, the trunks are stripped, sawn and trimmed to provide optimal yield for our selected formats. Under watchful quality control procedures, the oak is then expertly kiln dried before being married to the multi-layered birch or fir body that supports and underpins the Domus Wood Collection.
