Technology is all starting to look the same. The materials used to make computers, tablets and smartphones are not Eco-friendly and are designed for obsolescence.
What if instead of aluminum casings, our phones were surrounded by oak or hemlock? What about our keyboards?
A small team of designers and craftsmen have done just that by building Bluetooth-enabled portable keyboards from a more sustainable material: wood that merges Tech with Nature
Through a mixed process of machining and final hand assembly and varnishing, the keyboards are made entirely from your choice of Maple or Walnut.
The team of three Franck Fontana, Christophe Della Signora, Julien Salanave formed Orée, a company that is “reconciling tradition and novelty to create exceptional products,” and plans to continue making similar products.The Orée Board sells for £125.
