The Japanese aesthetic philosophy of Wabi-Sabi is something that we totally subscribe to. We seek beauty in that which is imperfect, raw, and tentative. We believe that it resides in the most modest and unassuming places—one place where it lives in abundance—is nature.
In nature, beauty can be found in the sculpted shapes of sand dunes, in the pastel gradient of the twilight sky, in the sun-kissed ocean ripples, so on and so forth. But if we were to put our finger on one particular form of beauty that makes the inner tines of our heart hum—it has to be that of wood. While we have always found ourselves fascinated towards the gnarly grain of the burled wood—there’s another texture that has caught our attention. And that is the flawed, irregular texture of the bark.
Here’s presenting “Borke”, German for bark—an exclusive nature-inspired collection from Holz in Form. Raw yet refined, it authentically captures the outer layer of the bark of a tree In order to ensure that the texture of tree bark is faithful to reality, these texturally rich embossed panels feature a jagged surface that has a natural rugged feel. Simply put, Borke will bring the vitality of outdoors in—this will not only enrich your interiors but will also soothe your senses.
Warm and characterful, Borke is imbued with a mix of deep tones and textures. Its appealing weathered look helps bring the outside in—there’s no denying about the calming effect they create in interiors. Borke is an ideal option for paneling and door necessitating an ‘au naturel’ look—they tick off all the right boxes—harmony, sophistication, and authenticity. Borke can be used to enhance an accent wall and storage units—not only will create a sense of continuity but will also amp up the tranquil vibe of your interiors.
If you are someone like us with a strong penchant for Scandinavian-inspired minimalism, we believe you will have all the more reason to fall in love with Borke. When you have the said interior aesthetic—the spotlight is, naturally, focused on the textures and Borke offers that in spades. Another good thing about these beautiful veneer panels is that as much as they are commanding on their own—they also pair well with concrete and chrome. Perfectly offsetting the coolness with their innate homespun warmth—Borke veneer panels are a must-have for interiors calling for rustic, modern-farmhouse interior style.
While it’s true that Borke’s visual richness makes it an obvious choice for interiors with a pared-down aesthetic, it also lends itself as an alluring counterpoint for contemporary and transitional settings. Whether you use it to enhance your bar counter or to dress an in-built wall wardrobe, Borke will make it as comfy and cozy as it can be.
