Stylish surfaces for stylish places

Fika is a newly refurbished café where wood veneer makes possible a warm and elegant atmosphere. CHANNEL VENEERS contributes to this space providing veneered panelling with Grissard veneer. This wood veneer is used to enter customers into a classical room where a fireplace and many libraries transform an ordinary café into an almost private club. As results, the place reminds a nineteen century club where dark and contrasted veneered surfaces are protagonists.

As well as Grissard wood veneer, lots of libraries full of stylish books wrap the different rooms of the bar. In addition to this nice wrapping, furniture has been carefully chosen to boost the elegance of the place. The careful design makes the café a perfect scenery to enjoy drinks and casual meetings.

The Grisard wood is a certain kind of Poplar. Grissard wood differs from well known white and black Poplar trees. Poplar is usually recognized for being fast growing specie to produce light weight timber, but Grissards main value is related to its particular appeal. Although Poplar is usually light cream to yellowish brown, the Grissard looks silvery grey with small rhombus. In addition to this, Grissard is glossier and can be smoked to achieve an innovative appeal.

The smoked Grissard offered by CHANNEL VENEERS is darker and more contrasted than the regular veneer. Also the natural glossy of this material is enhanced due to the smoking process. As a result of this, Smoked Grissard is a completely new wood surface, an exclusive finishing for exclusive uses.

Grissard veneer was chosen by the designers to fit the elegant atmosphere proposed for the renewal of Café Fika. Quarter Cut was identified as the most suitable log cut in order to define a well-structured wood surface. In addition, panelling has been made with book-matched veneer. This particular technique of splicing enhances the natural contrast between heartwood and sapwood.
