Visit one of 100% design's sponsors, Hakwood, and find out how through three simple, yet thorough steps, they can create an entirely unique design for your flooring and wall tile needs.
Now run by their second generation, Hakwood is a family-run business working to ensure that they deliver quality products meeting the expectations of their clients. In order to do this, they live and breathe by the saying, “possibilities are endless”.
Aimed at architects and interior designers, Hakwood create suitable spaces for the commercial, retail and hospitality sectors. With a bespoke tailored service to your needs, Hakwood offer their wooden tiles to be developed into a variety of designs with no limitations. There are a number of colours to pick from as well as a range of different textures and finishes. The manufacturing process takes place at their factory in Holland; however their services are used by clients worldwide, including India and Dubai and are hugely popular in London and Paris. To add to their list of endless possibilities, many will be happy to learn that they are a sustainable company, ensuring that the products are created with total care and respect of the environment.
A recent client of theirs includes the popular venue Everyman Theatre in Liverpool, who transformed their building with the help of Haworth Tompkins architects. With the use of the right woods and finishes, they were able to create a space that now breathes a warm atmosphere for visitors, allowing for a comfortable experience before, after and during theatre performances. With a natural essence at the front-of-house and a general relaxed finish throughout the venue, visitors are welcome to feel right at home. This is just one project showcasing the way in which Hakwood uses different wood colours, textures and finishes to create distinctive interior spaces.
