Massive, heavy, solid blocks of beech. We have chosen to work with only local Danish wood such as douglas, oak and beech. They have very different characters and call for different shapes and treatments. The solid squares come in blackened beech and oak. Beech has a rougher character than oak. It develops cracks in a wilder way, has bigger knots and the shape may twist a bit as it dries. We really like the combination of the rustic wood and the matte black linseed treatment. It seems to make a statement somehow. We have given the squares as little shape as possible, keeping the feeling of solid wood, yet aiming for different expressions. We use the solid items primarily as small tables as we like the flexibility and the airy feeling of smaller tables used in combination with each other. This is also why you will not find any coffee tables in the Noorstad collection.
