french design group orée has developed the ‘orée board‘, a bluetooth equipped wireless keyboard constructed from premium maple or walnut. beginning with a single piece of wood, the expert craftsman deconstruct it into three sheets. by doing so, they are able to maintain the continuity of the wood grain throughout the final work. a universally compatible device, the keyboard brings nature into the technological realm to an unprecedented degree. users can appreciate the feeling of highly finished, sustainably sourced wood from the south of france at their finger tips while connected simultaneously with up to five devices.
