The keyboard made from a single piece of walnut

THE keyboard. They are not all the same. What most crave in a keyboard is: absorbency; a good spring action; all the letters in the right places;  the knowledge that all the hair and scuzz in it is your own. But French company Orée caters for they who want more. They have created a keyboard created from a single piece of maple or walnut. As they say of the €125.00 object:

Orée was born from our observation that modern technology products look very much alike, are highly impersonal, made out of eco-unfriendly materials and are designed for rapid obsolescence. We set out to do something different: create lasting & personal high performance technology objects primarily made of wood, the most natural, durable and renewable material on earth. Orée is about reconciling tradition & novelty to create exceptional products through an exclusive combination of timeless woodworking techniques and cutting-edge technologies. All our products are eco-designed, crafted and hand-finished in France.

Wood.
