Elegant Wood

ElegantWood is a Japanese manufacturer of interior-design panels for installation in commercial facilities, hotels, and various other types of buildings.

Most ElegantWood panels are produced using a shaving process by CNC machine. This process allows us to make rich expressions on the surface of the panels. Shaving with a CNC machine enables us to portray various shapes and designs, such as 3D modeling of a complex relief sculpture or a design reflecting traditional Japanese woodwork. The details allow for beautiful shades of light and shadow created using the effects of lighting.
Attaching materials to a three-dimensional surface that has been shaved by CNC machine brings out its impressive quality and presence. We can make myriad presentations on the surface of the panels by using various materials, such as sliced veneers of white oak, walnut, Japanese wood like sugi (Japanese cedar) and hinoki (Japanese cypress), and cloth or fabric made of Japanese silk. The material and texture add a great finish expressing a multiplicity of uses. We propose added-value craftsmanship to help realize the ideas of the creators.
Our painting process gives specially designed panels more colorful and varied expression. This is completely different from applying color by printing. Our painting does not involve adding only a single color. It enables artistic painting styles with light luster or natural uneven touch, as well as nuances of pearl and metallic. The painting gives the impression that new life has been breathed into the panel.
