MADAME PATINA specializes in beautifully finished materials from original and painted reclaimed wood for furniture, wall paneling, floors and ceilings.

Design & Konzept: Christian Loikits

The exterior PATINA is the very soul of our products. Decades of exposure to sun, wind and rain have left their traces,as have prior forms of usage.

Time has changed the surface of the wood, adding to its beauty and character.

Madame Patina uses RECLAIMED WOOD as its raw material.

The wood is reclaimed from old buildings, cleaned, de-nailed and kiln dried. Ready for re-use, the wood is then processed with the utmost care, mostly for multilayer products.

A geometric basic design brings STRUCTURE and CONTRAST.

The combination of variegated surfaces from reclaimed wood creates looks that range from textile to picturesque impressions, making our products a playground for inexhaustible sensual experiences.

Choose from our BROAD RANGE of finishes and products from reclaimed wood with surfaces left in their original condition, showing traces of old paint or painted with ecologically friendly UV-resistant paint.

Art - Design - Projects

From the beginning of 2011, the company Altholz entered a cooperation with Christian Loikits. Far from traditional, rustic uses of old wood, this cooperation aims at opening up fresh, new perspectives for this unique material by realising new and original surfaces as well as ambitious design concepts for furniture and interior design.

The focus is on a straightforward approach to using shape types, featuring haptic effects as well as partial colour coatings and the use of wood with old paint coatings. A wide variety of materials, together with the experience and flexibility all our employees have with handling old wood, are constantly opening up new possibilities.
