Thors Design: reusing Azobé wood

Thors tables

Reusing and transforming the 50-year-old rustic Azobé wood from decommissioned wharfs in Denmark into simple and stylish designer furniture, is the fundamental idea behind all of the furniture from Thors-Design.

An interplay between cool galvanised iron and the wood's original raw, rustic look gives the furniture a modern feel with heart and soul that matches the modern home as well as professional environments.

Thors-Design recycles Azobé wood with the utmost respect for its uniqueness. When making furniture, the manufacturer always consider the way the wood moves and works. So, there are no two identical pieces of wood. All furniture by Thors-Design is custom-made.

Azobé wood is one of the world’s heaviest and most robust types of wood and contains a high level of natural oils. Today the Azobé wood is still strong and durable despite many years of exposure to the natural elements. The furniture has a long life cycle and is virtually indestructible. It can therefore be used indoors as well as outdoors all year around and can be enjoyed for generations.
