The art of loving
and processing timber
Bilo je leta 1946 v Omegni, majhni jezerski vasici na obrežju jezera Orta, v severozahodni Italiji;
Legnoart se je rodil tukaj iz ljubezni in strasti po lesu in lepoti.

Food and wine culture and lifestyle.
Italians have a natural and innate taste for good food and wine.
At Legnoart we turned this food and wine culture into out own art,
creating objects that find their naturally suited place in the world of
quality wines and kitchen delicacies. Those who own a Legnoart piece
are like us: they love beauty, function and quality, while appreciating
the importance of technical features. They believe daily life is a space
to be arranged and where individual choices can be expressed in
pursuit of a new life style that rejects mass consumerism.
The care and painstaking attention for details permeated every single
product in our collections. Our elegance is minimalist, though the
function is impeccable and the uniqueness uncompromising. The
material quality is excellent, and we do not intend it to be any less
that perfect, and during the production phase we prefer to fix the
small defects in our planks instead of resorting to chemical processes
that would make our surfaces all the same. Because the uniqueness
and beauty of wood lie in its small imperfections.
The product manufacturing phase takes place in a controlled
environment, for the purpose of preventing the wood from enduring
thermal shocks throughout the process. Every piece is processed
individually, leaving the operator free to chose the best way to bring
out the best from the raw material, and the finishing is handmade in
order to make the most of every single product.
Finally, the company is in direct control of the entire manufacturing
cycle: as such it ensures flexibility throughout it, as well as high-level
Our products display an outstanding consistency in terms of image
and stem from a single creative sensitivity. The well-balanced design
avoids both excessive post-modern intellectualism and the expressive
flatness of traditional design. The lines are essential yet versatile
and targeted on function. For Legnoart design is a bridge between
the present and the future: the passing of time and the changing
social and economic trends determine a change in needs and taste;
consequently, Legnoart focuses on researching new and innovative
solutions. Our customers’ thirst for new and original solutions is
always quenched, because we always anticipate new trends and
developments in the reference cultural models.
Ecology and wood processing.
Thermal wood processing is a high-tech technique whereby wood is
brought to a temperature between 180°C and 230°C to change its
chemical and mechanical properties. This results into a new product,
with darker overtones, 100% environmentally friendly, stable and
water, climate and parasite resistant.
Moreover, in order to protect the finished product, plant and mineral
substances are used. The finishing is visually open pore, to bring out
the structure of wood and to display the pores where sap used to
flow. These channels were developed by the plant spring after spring
through its entire life, and their arrangement tells us about the life
of the tree: how may years it lived, how fast it grew and the type of
environment it inhabited.
