Modern design: Kayu V-wood wall cladding by Island Timber

Island Timber, a division of Island Stone, has launched Kayu V-wood wall cladding, a meshed tile arrangement of reclaimed Indonesian teak with a tapering relief.

Taken together, the tiles weave across the wall, providing a modern take on salvaged tropical wood.

Each tile is a wood composite, crafted with reclaimed Indonesian heartwood adhered to premium-grade pine. The distressed teak is repurposed from timber salvaged from tropical buildings. Colors available include golden hues, grays and smoky dark tones, combining to capture the history of the ancient wood.
