Products Used: Duracore Silent.

When you are an on-the-go kiwi family, the finishes you select simply have to hack the pace. We loved working with this awesome kiwi crew who went for function without compromising on beauty when they chose DuracoreSilent Acoustic Flooring.

Mum of four busy boys, 5 cats, a dog and two Chinchilla's keeps this legend kiwi Mum on toes but one thing she doesn't worry about is being precious with the floors. Pool water, animal and kid muck and red wine spills are easy fixes and the patented acoustic core reduces 30% of that sometimes 'full on' ambient noise!

Thanks Team, it was a pleasure working with you.

Sandringham Villa

residential

Products Used: Ecodure Oak.

This 140 year old Sandringham villa was fully renovated top to toe 5 years ago - except for the floors. While the character of our old kauri is beautiful, no amount of fixing and reinforcing could quiet this squeaky floor.

By using Ecodure Extra Wide and Extra Long engineered Oak 240mm, the look and feel of this high stud hallway has been completely transformed.

Care and attention to detail by the installers made the whole exercise 100% worth the effort for our clients. 'We are so pleased with the new Ecodure Oak floor. It feels so earthy and natural under foot and best of all - no noise!"

BJELIN at the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair

Wood is the world’s most versatile and moldable material. The possibilities are endless and you can create objects of all sizes and shapes. The material is also fantastic in the sense that it is constantly present and growing in our vicinity, which has made the relationship between humans and trees very strong.

BJELIN has, in collaboration with JOYN Studio, created an exhibition to pay homage to wood and its fantastic properties. In our exhibition at Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair, we have therefore invited a number of selected Nordic designers who, just like BJELIN, utilize wood to manufacture products.

We wanted to showcase the mix of this hand crafted art which has been created with simple means together with BJELIN’s high-tech wooden floorings which are manufactured in large volumes in the world’s most modern flooring factories.

Huge contrasts, but with the same denominator - wood.

Products Used: BJELIN Hardened Oak.

Interior designer at Kantikant, Camilla Fritz Grundelius discussed with BJELIN;

“Our brief was to create a premium experience and for the floor to be in harmony with the interiors. We chose the Select grading to avoid having too many knots in the wood, and together with the light Misty White colour, we created a clean and stylish canvas. The extra-large XXL planks added to the exclusive feeling we wanted to achieve."

“Choosing a hardened floor was partly for sustainable reasons but also because of the durability. We needed a floor that could handle heavy traffic. And we are super happy with the result. We receive plenty of praise from customers,” added Martin Jörgensen.
