Bookmatching exclusive woods for car bespoke interior

Bookmatching is the practice of matching two wood surfaces. This means two adjoining surfaces mirror each other. This gives the impression of an opened book. In addition, both veneer or solid wood can be bookmatched. The technique is used to beautify objects. For instance furniture, violins, guitars and the car bespoke interiors of our high-end luxury cars. The two adjoining surfaces are produced from the same piece of wood. This will ensure they have exactly the same, mirrored, appearance. The final effect varies with the figure of the wood chosen. From extremely subtle, making the two surfaces appear almost to be a single piece of wood. Or a more outspoken and dramatic effect. We can show a wavy grain, as in high-end guitars. Above all, marble or other patterned stone can also be bookmatched.

No two Niels van Roij Design motor cars will ever be the same

Our wood specialists source the finest woods by hand to make veneers. The grain of each veneer is as unique as a human fingerprint. Above all, this means that no two Niels van Roij Design coachbuilt motor cars will ever be the same. Our marquetry is world-class. Our craftspeople will look for beautiful pieces of wood. Featuring attractive structures and patterns. It takes about 30 days for each set of veneers to be crafted. It demands patience and precision from our craftspeople. Layer by layer they remove layers of veneer with a rotating blade. Like pages of a book, these are then collected. After that, our wood experts keep the veneers in their correct. By hand they are sanded, lacquered and polished. As a result, when it’s time to fit them, the veneers can be bookmatched by eye. This achieves a beautiful and perfect symmetry in the interior.
