The concept of vintage is derived from the old French word vendenge, (now vendange), applied to each yearly crop of the most prized wines.
“Prized” in our context refers to the wood we recover from traditional haylofts, mills and country houses. This wood was once lived in and was therefore alive but now risks a death sentence unless transformed into some other thing.
Our work is no mere exercise in nostalgia, the philosophy that makes sense of everything we do is the drive for reuse.
The vintage experience means knowing how to value that heritage that belongs to us and must not be thrown away. It is an ethical rather than a mere fashion choice.
