Board Essential

Bare. Essential

We kept the essentials of our now iconic keyboard

And added a few more for a simplified and more universal experience.

We kept the timeless minimal design,

the exquisite natural materials,

and the distinctive hand-polished touch.

We added dual Bluetooth / USB cable connection

and a rechargeable battery. So it just works

With any device at any time.

This is Board Essential.

Made to last

The Board Essential is built to endure. So the patina of use will fully reveal its timeless beauty.  We apply an invisible food-safe varnish that stringently protects the wood against casual stains. We design our electronics carefully for lasting performance.

Unique. By design and construction

We cut each Board from a single piece of wood. Preserving the wood grain across the shell and keys. So each Board is unique and reflects the native tree it came from.With its own wild veins and spirals.

Each piece is sanded, varnished and assembled by hand in our atelier. So you can feel an incomparable caring touch.

Essentially perfect.

The Board Essential just works. With any computer, tablet or smartphone. On any operating system. On USB cable or wireless Bluetooth.  On batteries that just recharge when needed.

The Board Essential is simply the most universal keyboard out there.

How do I take care of my Board?

Our Board Essential has an invisible (matte) food-safe varnish that protects against casual stains like finger oil or water spills. To clean it, use a clean cloth slightly humidified with clear water. Do not use any detergent product for cleaning.

How come the letters don't fade?

Unlike standard keyboards, the letters are engraved into the wood so they don’t peel off.

Where does the wood come from?

We source our woods from family-owned forests located in the Eastern part of France (maple from Doubs, walnut from Isère). They are not used for intensive production purposes so sustainability labels are not applicable but the families growing them carefully manage their natural resources for future generations.
