New Showroom and renewed office premises

Since the product range of Timberwise has been growing continuously, last spring we had to face the fact that our showroom was utterly becoming too small. We also needed more office premises due to the increase of our personnel. Our owner and CEO Mr. Markku Mäkitalo made fast plans and decisions and already on summer 2016 the construction and renovation works started in Timberwise. At the same time we decided to update the office interior.

The constructional changes of renovation were designed by Architect Hannu Vaisto and Markku Mäkitalo. Together they planned the reorganization of the office premises and the extension upwards, when our office grew into 2 floors. To the second floor we got a spacious showroom of over 200 m2 where we can keep also trainings for bigger groups in addition to large product exhibition.

We wanted the interior renovation to reflect Timberwise’s values; quality, durability and elegance. Because of this it was natural choice for us to hire interior designer Helena Karihtala (Interior Desing Helena Karihtala) to design the renovation. Helena took into consideration the above mentioned points and our wish to use as much Timberwise products as possible. In addition we asked her to favor domestic producers when choosing furniture and lights. The end result was guaranteed Helena design –stylish, pure quality, harmonic and the colors match seamlessly! In every way beautiful and Timberwise looking.

We executed most of the renovation based to Helena’s design plan during the summer and autumn, and the rest will be executed according to the need. The first official use of new showroom was in our Christmas party for employers. And the first official house warming party was this spring with the best company when the interior media and bloggers came to visit Timberwise. We will be inviting more and more our customers and co-operators to visit our new premises. We will be giving both product training and installation training as well as offer our showroom for designers’ to visit with their customers.

In the interior we used widely Timberwise products in floors, walls and even in furniture. Cozy and clear style sofa group is from Hakola, gorgeous lights from Innolux, stylish sanitary furniture from Ido and faucets from Oras. Showroom and negotiation space chairs are from our co-operator Restatop which is a top public space furnisher. All the big windows upstairs and office windows were from local producer Domus Oy.

Timberwise thanks everyone involved in our renovation. Thank you also for photographer Ulla-Maija Lähteenmäki from our PR-Office Dream Cozy for the beautiful picture below.

Welcome to visit renewed Timberwise!

 

New pictures are here!

Now they are finally here, the amazing and beautiful new pictures of Timberwise. These pictures were created by dream team Joanna Laajisto (art directing), Susanna Vento (styling) and Mikko Ryhänen (photography).

In the beginning of this year, Timberwise had 2 weeks of photo shooting in Helsinki. We photo shooted over 30 products, took over 100 pictures and here you have the result, beautiful pictures of beautiful floors created by such a professional dream team.

Naturally the project started already well before during last year, when Joanna and Susanna went through the products to be photographed with Timberwise, decided the styles and overall needs for each product. After that there was producing the material, searching for the locations and props, building the sets and taking the pictures.

This was a huge project for Timberwise since in numbers it looks like this:

Enormous amount of designing and planning hours, prepping and working beforehand,  10 photo shooting days, 3 different locations, 90 hours of building, installing and photoshooting, 31 floors, 500 m2 of parquet and monumental amount of props. 

We thank from our heart following companies for co-operation:  Ikea, Svanefors, Familon, Polish Design, Ellos, Roots Living, Adea, Westerberg, Finnish Design Shop, Menu, Flos, Stockmann, Lokal, Plootu, Tikkurila, IMG Interiors.

For the photo shooting locations we thank Nougat Showroom, Studio Liisa Valonen and Susanna Vento.

We thank everyone who made this possible for us!

Bright colors from Timberwise

The oak parquet PINK we launched last year was just a beginning! We have now launched more bright colors from Timberwise to our oak parquets. We have both lovely bright colors as well as beautiful shades. With these only the imagination is the limit.

These delicious bright colors give one the opportunity to cheer up for example children rooms, living rooms or studies at home. Or in the public spaces like restaurants, stores, offices, hotels one can brighten up or separate spaces from each other with these colors. And no one is limiting the use of these only to floors! Our oak parquets can be installed to the wall as well, or even to the ceiling. We can also tailor colors to projects, so almost everything is possible. Even though the color is covering the brushing of the surface brings the wood grain visible keeping the outlook of a wooden floor.

May we present the Spring 2016 novelty bright colors (click the picture bigger):

All the novelty colors are brushed and matte lacquered. Above are only some of our novelty colors, since we have been busy. So there are more colors to come and do remember also the possibility of tailoring colors for projects. The novelty products will be presented by our retailers during the spring – summer 2016, until then you may order the sample pieces directly from the e-mail: info@timberwise.fi

Timberwise press release

Timberwise’s parquets are granted Finnish Allergy Label

Timberwise joins the Design from Finland -stand at Habitare

Timberwise has been granted the right to use Finnish Allergy and Asthma Federation’s Allergy Label as the first flooring manufacturer ever. Traditional Timberwise pine parquets have also been selected to Toimittajien Tusina 2014, which is an annual listing of top 12 most interesting and inspiring design products chosen by the Finnish Interior Journalists Association. Timberwise parquets are manufactured in Loimaa, Finland and at Habitare Design Fair they are displayed in a shared stand 7h68 where Key Flag- and Design from Finland -companies come together to highlight Finnish design skills. Floor of the whole stand is Timberwise’s exquisite Oak XXL parquet.

Timberwise Oy is a Finnish family-owned company located in Loimaa, which has been manufacturing single-strip parquets, also known as plank parquets, since the year 2000. Timberwise focuses on premium quality, safety and Finnish materials – at least two thirds of all the raw materials are always Finnish. Timberwise has just received the Allergy Label from the Finnish Allergy and Asthma Federation as the first flooring manufacturer. Timberwise uses only glue and surface treatments which contain no added formaldehyde so the parquets do not release any harmful chemicals in the air. When formaldehyde evaporates it can cause irritation in eyes and respiratory system even when the amounts are small. The causal relation between formaldehyde and asthmatic symptoms has been studied. Timberwise’s emission free parquets increase comfort of living by improving the quality of air. That is why Timberwise parquets are a safe choice also for families with children and people with allergies.

– Timberwise is a forerunner and the company shows excellent know-how in both emission free materials and high-quality raw materials. Timberwise parquets are the first flooring materials, which have qualified for the Finnish Allergy Label. They do not contain any formaldehyde and volatile organic compounds are so low that Timberwise parquets are suitable for use almost everywhere, tells Head of Communications Niki Alanko from the Allergy and Asthma Federation.

Domestic origin is a matter of heart for Timberwise

Timberwise wants to cherish Finnish wood-refining skills and therefore it has focused in keeping the manufacturing in Finland by investing in product development and manufacturing techniques and by increasing automation. Timberwise parquets have also received the Key Flag Symbol which tells about the products’ Finnish origin. At Habitare Design Fair held in Expo and Convention Centre Helsinki on 10.–14.9.2014 Timberwise joins the Key Flag- and Design from Finland -companies’ shared stand 7h68 with nine other blue and white design experts.

Timberwise’s versatile parquet range is displayed at Habitare

Timberwise manufactures plank parquets from four different types of wood: oak, ash, larch and pine. Timberwise was the first parquet manufacturer to give up using exotic species of tree on ethical grounds and to focus on manufacturing and colouring oak and ash parquets. Nowadays the company is the forerunner in colour treatments of wooden floors with one of the largest colour selections in the market. At Habitare Timberwise exhibits e.g. the grand Herringbone floors, naturally knotty larch floors and traditional Finnish pine floors, which were selected to prestigious Toimittajien Tusina 2014, the top 12 favourite design products listed by Finnish interior design journalists of Sisustustoimittajat ry.

High-quality Timberwise parquets are designed for demanding conditions

All Timberwise parquets have a solid three layer structure where the middle layer is made of Finnish birch plywood, which improves durability, instead of commonly used pine plywood. Due to their stable structure Timberwise parquets are applicable also in the most demanding conditions where temperatures and humidity vary considerably. All wood used by Timberwise is from PEFC-certified forests located in the EU region.

Companies in Design from Finland -stand 7h68 include:

Melaja Oy / Studio Eero Aarnio
VM-Carpet
By Johanna Lehtinen Oy
Sulattamo Oy / be&liv
