Introducing ‘Operis’, a new addition to the FBC London wall-panelling collection. Elemental, enigmatic and modernist!
Using a method called Yakisugi, Operis is inspired by the centuries-old Japanese technique for preserving and finishing wood by charring it with fire.
The surface of the wood is charred with a high-intensity flame distributed evenly across the panel. A wire brush removes the char created by the blowtorch to reveal a rich, dark, brownish-black colour.
This process takes three days, working panel by panel; burning and brushing by hand. Finished with a molten pewter or bronzed metal poured over the surface and cooled, the gravitas imparted by the process and finished result are undeniable. The charring of the wood reveals clean, distinct lines and an inherent textural beauty with an imposing aura of intrigue and depth.
Lead Time : 10 – 12 weeks
Price Excludes: Site Survey & Installation. Installation costs dependant on number of panels and location of installation.
Wood & Colour Variations: All wood used in the manufacturing of FBC London product is of the highest quality. Like all natural materials, wood has inherent disparities in colour and grain pattern because of variations caused by nature, over which the company has no control. FBC London cannot guarantee exact colour, grain, or texture of wood.
Metal & Patina Variations: As with all natural, handmade materials, slight variation in the finish and colour is possible and not considered a defect.
