- Tana in Gloss Piano Black Lacquer (20″ Deep X 30″ Wide).
All Kanso shelves, regardless of product, are produced by laminating multiple layers of different materials chosen both for their hardness, density and anti-resonance characteristics. A special elastomeric material is used between the layers. This elastomeric material, (developed by a group of acoustic, mechanical, and chemical engineers), converts mechanical energy (vibration) into heat energy. As heat energy, it dissipates. Both the top and underside of the shelf are then clad with a solid anodized aluminum veneer of brushed black, silver, or bronze color. Copper cladding is also an option. The principal reason for the metal cladding on the surface of the shelves is for rapid transfer of vibration from the component chassis into the shelf.
To give all shelves the finishing touch, the perimeter is wrapped in wood which matches the support structures of the rack.
As an option, the top of the highest shelf can have a wood veneer. The underside is still clad in aluminum.
