Bauwerk Vintage Old News


Snippets of news 50s, images and ads retro-style flooring make a really original and funny: is the proposed Bauwerk Parquet with new collection “Old News” designed by Swiss designer Virginia Maissen. Each board of the collection (strictly natural wood) is different and is assembled so as to deliberately create a surface irregular and “ancient”. In practice each pose becomes a unique flooring. The collection “Old News” is part of the VinOld Newswerk all designed with different proposals from Virginia Maissen.
It is characterized by a virtually infinite number of variations, with well 2047 different combinations and types of installation.

The system of pre-finished two-layer parquet Bauwerk has among the main features: stability and low noise (The special construction of pre-assembled parts reduces the impact noise of 50% compared to floating parquet);thermal insulation (standard MINERGIE) heat transfer but also ideal for underfloor heating; ease of installation (without joints or step guides).
Made of strips of oak (470x70x11 mm) le finiture “Old News” are made with a special dye sublimation with natural colors.

Founded in 1939, Bauwerk uses only wood from sustainably managed forests and certified by the European regions with regrowth. The emphasis on environmental responsibility, combined with knowledge and selection of the best raw materials, Bauwerk make a point of reference for anyone who is looking for quality and healthy living.
With about 600 employees divided between Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Netherlands, France and Italian, Building manufactures and markets more 400 types of wooden flooring and a wide assortment of accessories.
