Inspiration

In Italy we like to do things well.
We have refined our tastes through the centuries.
In kitchens, laboratories and workshops..
G18WoodLab is a space in which we let wood express itself.
It’s the Italian style, it’s the accuracy of details, it’s the love for beauty.

Research

We always perceive something magical in matter.
Sometimes it’s something unusual, other times a story to tell.
We are looking for magic in the essences of wood.
Because each of them inspires an emotion and opens up a way to interpret it.
G18WoodLab is our magical touch, giving wood a new life.

Being inspired by nature, we consider organic and artificial matter much closer than they appear: the observation of natural shapes and textures provides the basic structure of our everyday work. And ordinary life appears precisely through the artistic breath of Francesca Pasquali’s work, in which the uninterrupted dialogue between earthly and noble delivers a specificity of perfectly signifying connections which are – as such – each time unrepeatable.

Heritage

Since 1910, Gazzotti 18 has been the equivalent of parquet flooring, in Italy and worldwide. At the beginning of the twentieth century, Italy’s then-“Real Casa” chose us as official suppliers. We are known internationally as quality-conscious manufacturers. With G18WoodLab, we intend to show everyone what we do best:
hand down to the future a story written in the knots and veins of our passion.

Style

We enter the houses you live in, the stores you design, the places you love most.
We want to charm you with satisfying atmospheres and give a soul to the space you live in.
To do this, we reinvent the style, recover the tradition, anticipate the trends.
G18WoodLab combines study with experimentation and the desire to get involved.
Each G18WoodLab product reflects the attitude of those who chose it: it is unique and unr epeatable.

Engineered Natural Woods

We find beauty in a Venetian canal, in a Mediterranean landscape, in a ship that challenges the seas.
Teak, palissander, elm, walnut, ash, chestnut: in G18WoodLab, each new creation is the arrival of a long journey.

Solid Natural Woods

These experiences not only remain in our eyes, but, through skillful work, are conveyed to wood.

That’s what G18WoodLab really stands for: the love for wood, and for its power to permeate the space around us, giving it new keys of interpretation and perspective – in other words, to give the chance to shape new rooms with a view.
