What is Kentholz?
‘Kentholz’ was founded in 2014 in Berlin by Melbourne (Australia) born, Stacey Alexander Kent. Kent is driven by a deep commitment to sustainability rooted in his love of the beauty and warmth of reclaimed wood. (‘Holz’ meaning wood in German).
For ‘Kentholz’, sustainability is more than just a desirable goal, it is the key guiding principle in everything we do.
What is so special about our tables?
Our tables are handcrafted from what others perceive as waste materials, making each piece both an object of beauty and a connection to the past.
Made from reclaimed aged Oak, Pine or our hand cast Terrazzo, these prestige materials give our designs their warmth and personality. The individual details and markings of each board or slab add unexpected textures, colours and forms.
No aspect of our process is standardised or prefabricated. Each new commission is an opportunity for our team of artisans to push our practice further, driven by the belief that sustainable products are luxurious.
What is reclaimed wood?
Reclaimed wood is wood that has had a prior life, having been previously used and rescued from old buildings, structures or work sites. As the world’s natural resources dwindle, the use of reclaimed timber or salvaged wood has emerged in design as a sustainable alternative to using newly harvested wood.
All the reclaimed wood we source throughout Germany and Austria is over 100 years old, adding a sense of warmth, history and wisdom to any room. Reclaimed wood retains its strength and beauty even with age, making it extremely hard-wearing and durable.
What does “FSC-certified” mean?
FSC stands for Forest Stewardship Council. “FSC-certified” products were developed to protect forests’ biodiversity and ecological processes throughout the world. The FSC Recycled label means all the wood in the product comes from reclaimed (reused) material. All Oak used in our product range is FSC Recycled certified, sourced from Germany and Austria.
What is Terrazzo?
A twist on classic Terrazzo concrete, the Terrazzo we produce customises each element of Terrazzo casting. Aggregate such as recycled glass, discarded porcelain, marble and quartz are combined with multi-tone cements for a myriad of colour and dimension. This brand new range allows clients the chance to enjoy the tactile pleasure of a stone table top while minimising their impact on the environment. View our terrazzo tables here.
