Snedker Studio, in 2011, decided to modernize the Nordic wood floors with Marbelous wood, parquet flooring decorated with the forgotten pattern technique of marbling. Surprising results just by composing adding color drops on a water surface and transferring it to a material.
Marbelous Wood tells a story about time. Each print on the wood captures a unique frozen moment within the process. Produced one drop of colour after another, ring by ring, the pattern is constructed on the water surface. The final result is a reflection of the annual rings of wood.
