NEW: Ash solid wood mouldings

On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the wooden magnetic frames, HALBE introduces the edition bar

Kirchen, May 14, 2020 - Wooden frames are the classics among picture frames. The processing of wooden frames is firmly anchored in the company history of HALBE-rahmen (www.HALBE-rahmen.de). Through the tireless inventive spirit of Hubert and Heinrich HALBE the magnetic frame was developed in 1973 - at that time only as an aluminium frame. 25 years ago Heinrich HALBE succeeded in developing the first high-quality magnetic frame made of solid wood, which met the high quality demands for protection and comfort. On the occasion of the wooden frame anniversary at HALBE, the popular ash wood with its characterful grain was added to the portfolio as a filigree wooden frame in the colours natural, white and black.  

 

Wooden frames - the classic in interiors

What underlines the effect of small and large works of art more than a stylish frame that sets the picture perfectly in scene? Wooden frames not only look fantastic, but their individual structure underlines the uniqueness of the artwork and makes it a real eye-catcher. Whether ash, maple or walnut - each type of wood has its own character and different properties. Wooden frames also have a long tradition at HALBE. As early as 1946, the first simple frames were made of wood. Since a picture frame should offer perfect conservation frame properties and the greatest possible comfort at the same time, the frame construction has been continuously optimised over the years.

 

Magnetic frame principle - the trend-setting development

In 1973, Heinrich HALBE was sitting at a drawing board doing assignments for technical college. The paper was held on the drawing board by magnets. Heinrich HALBE came up with a brilliant idea that has shaped the company's history to this day. Together with his father Hubert HALBE he developed the first magnetic frame made of aluminium and applied for a patent. Within a few years, the aluminium frame became the epitome of the highest possible quality among art connoisseurs worldwide, as it combines the best possible protection with easy picture replacement from the front as well as timeless design with many years of durability.

 

Wooden magnetic frames - naturalness paired with function and durability

As the well-known saying goes "a rolling stone gathers no moss" - so Heinrich HALBE never gave up developing the magnetic frame further and kept thinking about real wood profile strips. In 1995, the design was ready for the first wooden magnetic frame that lived up to the quality promise of HALBE frames. Since then, the wooden magnetic frames have enjoyed great popularity with gallery owners, museums, public institutions, industrial companies as well as photographers and private individuals. The production share of wooden magnetic frames is steadily increasing in line with the growing popularity of wood in interior design.

 

Wooden magnetic frames - individuality is the trump card

As in fashion, there is no such thing as one style in interior design. The art of furnishing is more than painting the walls in the colour of the season and arranging the latest designer furniture - a homely atmosphere with a personal touch is required. That's why HALBE offers wooden magnetic frames in maple, oak, alder and walnut as well as in different colour shades from white to natural, brown to black and in four strip widths. 

Since every tree has its own character and transfers this to its wood, the professionals take great care in the individual production of the frames to ensure that all four strips fit together perfectly and that the grain remains recognisable.

 

For the 25th anniversary: special edition ash tree

The ash tree can grow up to 300 years old and 35 - 40 metres high. This makes it one of the tallest deciduous trees in our forests. On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the wooden magnetic frames, HALBE is now including the solid wood edition ash in its range. It is offered as a filigree 13 mm wooden strip in natural as well as white and black for the production of individual magnetic frames up to the format 100 x 140 cm with different glass qualities. A strip of natural ash is ideal for framing landscape photographs, graphics and works of art in bold colours. What's more, ash is absolutely trendy - furniture designers are increasingly turning to ash for the latest home trends. The wood colour is slightly lighter than oak and stronger than maple. The natural ash wood character is particularly accentuated on coloured walls.
