karuun® block

The world’s first blocks made from the trunk of the rattan palm – form and function in perfect harmony.​

Poles of rattan are painstakingly transformed into karuun® before being milled square and pressed into blocks with a uniform fibre structure. As a prefabricated, dry and solid material that doesn’t splinter or have any knots or uneven growth, karuun® block is ideally suited for all high-end applications requiring solid materials.​

karuun® block is fast becoming a popular choice, it stands out from other natural materials not least because of its structure, which doesn’t show any splintering, knots or uneven growth when processed.

Either with dyed capillaries or left natural, both the end and face grain are visually stunning and possess remarkable tactile qualities. When exposed by diagonal or free-form seams in the blocks, the capillary structure becomes a celebrated design artefact.

karuun® block can be processed with any cutting tools, making it ideal for woodworking in the premium wood industry as well as for furniture and interior design. Its special charm though, is its natural beauty which is accentuated when karuun® block is milled or turned at different angles.
