Textured warmth

Wood is “alive” and immediately creates a more intimate, warm and cosy atmosphere. In every wooden object that
has been carved, cut, sculptured or shaped by the hands and intelligence of Man one can perceive the strength
of life.

Unlike synthetic materials that tend to deteriorate over time, instead of consuming wood each instant adds the
warmth of maturity, becoming part of a story and adding value and beauty to the original product.

A special treatment perfected by Valcucine during a two-year testing period is capable of preserving the natural
texture of wooden surfaces. When wood treated this way is touched by the fingertips, a contact is immediately
established between the person and the material.

Wooden surfaces feature good stain resistance but poor scratch resistance and, since it is a natural material, over
time wood is altered by exposure to light. Nevertheless, it is important to keep in mind that when you choose a
natural material you must accept the small imperfections and signs of age that this entails.

Wood offers poor resistance to heat and, in the presence of lots of humidity, can become slightly deformed.
This is why it is never used near sinks and hobs.

Valcucine’s wood is protected by water-based varnishes from which aromatic, carcinogenic solvents have been
completely removed.

To prevent the natural yellowing wood can be subject to over time, Valcucine uses a varnish made up of special
pigments whose yellow part fades when exposed to light. This is the exact opposite to what happens to the wood
below it. This treatment counterbalances the yellowing process, significantly reducing the extent of alterations in the
colour of wood over time
