The Teak Collection
- story by Wonderwall Studios
Made from prime teak reclaimed from abandoned houses, Current is a spectacularly carved panel that echoes classic Japanese tattoo-art. Mountains, waves, flowing water. What you see, is up to you. For those with an acquired taste.
RECLAIMED TEAK COLLECTION
Wonderwall sources the reclaimed teak in Indonesia, a much-beloved tropical hard wood that is found in the pillars of derelict houses and as root wood on plantations. The teak comes in various stages of erosion; some much weathered, others not so. Some characterised by a flame grain, others by more organic and erratic water markings.
Wood from derelict buildings in Indonesia is abundant, very diverse and beautifully scarred and weathered. Wonderwall sources on Java, where it has been exposed to decades of sun, rain and wind. It has all the markings you would expect an old floorboard, a pillar or a roofbeam to have. The amount of erosion – from light to heavy – influences the colour and hue of a piece of timber. Teak is just one of the wood types in this mixed bag.
