A Kitchen Made from Eight Oak Trees

Julie Carlson April 30, 2012

Laser-cut steel and rough-hewn wood collide in this kitchen by Wiedemann Werkstatten in Munich, created with timber from eight perfect oak trees.

George and Lucia Wiedemann, who operate Wiedemann Werkstatten, a third-generation custom design company in Munich that specializes in "extreme kitchens," used precision laser-cut steel, no nails, and no glue in this project for a large design agency. To see another project by the firm, go to Modular Island by Wiedemann Werkstatten.

Above: The kitchen features timber from eight oak trees milled at a local sawmill: "There are very few sawmills in Germany capable of processing large timbers such as these," according to the Wiedemanns.
