For more than 120 years, Dinesen has been driven by a passion to create bespoke solutions that go beyond the traditional. With an eye for the value of diversity in every tree and every project, Dinesen makes solid and engineered planks for wooden flooring, panelling, ceiling and other design elements. The company’s perspective allows wood to be at the heart of your interior – from intimate personal spaces to expansive public and cultural settings.
Ever since 1898, the company has been driven by a passion for wood and respect for nature. Every day for four generations, life at Dinesen has revolved around high-quality wood and good craftsmanship. The respect for nature has been passed down from father to son, all of whom have grown up at the old sawmill, carrying on the family's passion for wood.
From a carefully selected range of trees comes a world of opportunities and sensory perceptions. The company’s craftsmanship and knowledge of manufacturing have been refined through four generations to obtain a finish like no other. They preserve the natural beauty of the tree and its pure and powerful expression. Knots are given special attention to give the planks character and personality.
Dinesen wooden planks come from family owned German and French forests. The forest and the sil have been cultivated for centuries by foresters steeped in traditions of sustainable forestry to grow extraordinary, majestic trees. Dinesen sources the most suitable trees. Each tree is selected based on quality criteria such as straightness, growth rings, knots and harmony, and only a small proportion of trees live up to our standards.
The company relationship with the foresters run deep and is key to selecting the right trees. The trees they select are between 80 and 200 years old, and handpicked based on their structure and dimensions to ensure each tree is the finest nature can produce. An important element of sustainable forestry is cutting down one tree at a time, thus giving the trees a chance to grow strong and live out their total capacity, before they are felled and ready to serve new purposes. That is sustainability in practice.
