A new product destined to grace many interior design schemes in the near future has been developed by Taskworthy.Called Ravier Crystal, it comprises solid hardwood strips alternating with clear acrylic for bespoke furniture and fit-out design.Available in 8mm thickness (for shelving, decorative panelling, etc) or 20mm thickness. Flush doors, for example, can be constructed out of the thicker sheet, using a larger width of timber for the stiles.

The invisible glue joints between the wood and acrylic are formed by high-frequency (or radio-frequency) vinyl bonding, such that the glued joint is stronger than the wood itself. Sheets are brought in from France to approximate finished dimensions but are sufficiently workable to be cut, modelled and polished in the joinery shop.

Spacings and wood species can be varied, with a maximum panel size of 1,200mm x 800mm. Weighing about 7.4kg/m 2(depending on the chosen wood), there is no fire integrity, and tests are continuing with external and high moisture internal conditions to assess climatically induced movement.
