Finnish design has a new top product that combines Scandinavian design, modern innovation, and an age-old material, wood.

Woodio Oy manufactures designer basins for bathrooms out of a new type of material. It is the world’s first waterproof wood composite, which is a combination of wood chips and resin.

A versatile and durable material

Woodio’s goal is to develop wood-based materials, and therefore diversify the uses of wood. Woodio’s composite material is ecological, and it is extremely durable in use. Its manufacturing materials have been curated so as to make sure that the products’ materials are recyclable as waste-to-energy. The products’ carbon footprints have been reduced as to a minimum. Manufacturing more traditional porcelain burdens the environment with high firing temperatures, but there are no such problems with the manufacturing of Woodio’s wood composite.

Available in many colours and with various surface textures, the composite material is versatile enough to shift from use in basins to many other applications in interior decoration. Woodio is also launching wall panelling, bathtubs, and toilet seats in tandem with the basin collection in the future. Additionally the material is versatile enough for almost any use, but Woodio’s plan is to create new products that focus on evoking wonder and highlighting a new way to use wood.

The durable material is also well suited for use in public spaces, and it has found many uses in hotels and restaurants. With the support of retail networks, Woodio’s products have also lately found their way into many Finnish homes. To signify their confidence in their product’s durability, Woodio gives all of their products a five year guarantee.
