The parquet is made of solid natural moraine oak, which has lain under water for 300 to 3000 years. The plank has dimensions of length 500-1500 mm, width 70 mm, thickness of the array 20 mm. The parquet is selected according to the color scheme from brown to black.
Bog Oak is the household name for oak wood that has been buried in peat bog for hundreds and in some cases thousands of years. Yes, it’s old. Now here’s the science behind it: Peat – or turf – is a build-up of decaying organic matter. Anything buried in peat stays well preserved for
millennia due to the absence of oxygen. One of the oldest pieces of beautifully preserved Bog Oak to have been hauled to the surface was dated to be 8000 years old. The trees, trunks and logs we reclaim are from large oak trees that have been felled by man or nature. During the decades, centuries and millennia the wood has sunk ever deeper into the black mud. Deprived of oxygen the oak mummifies and is protected from decay.
At the same time it is enriched and coloured by acids and minerals. Compare it to a whiskey that has been allowed to age for decades. The rich, dark shades of brown and intense blacks give Bog Oak its exclusive look. Bog Oak has been through a lot. It deserves the best; we intend to give it that.
