Woodio is a Finnish eco-design and material technology company. Its commitment to innovation and sustainable development is backed by the creation of a materialwhich is the world’s first 100% waterproof solid wood composite with a minimal carbon footprint.

The patent pending wood material technology is an innovative combination of wood and resin based adhesives. Approximately 80% of the product content is locally sourced wood.

Woodio material is far more impact resistant than many other bathoom materials, making it practically unbreakable in normal use. It is maintenance free and the expected life time is the same as with any traditional bathroom materials – or even longer.

They stand for sustainable choices throughout the whole production process – from the material itself to manufacturing, long-term use and disposal (Woodio products serve as a CO2 storage, and they can be burned as energy when they have come to the end of their lifecycle. No landfill waste), and combine the advantages of commonly known bathroom materials, while offering a solution to their issues.

The way they see the world is that the transition towards circular economy and design is a must. We all have to start making sustainable choices, whatever we do.

The ceramic industry is among the most polluting industries globally, so they realized that the bathroom industry has lot to improve.

Woodio´s material innovation was inspired by an idea of making more sustainable wooden bathroom tiles. At first, this seemed impossible and extremely challenging, but it was a mountain their team was ready to conquer.

And they’re so glad they did, because a new material was born! Their role as an eco-design company is to raise discussion around topics that have an impact on the well-being of our Earth.

As a brand they want to offer a solution that is less of a burden to the environment and change the way the world thinks about bathrooms. That is why their development efforts focus on biobased and recycled raw materials. In order to make a change, we are now faced with the challenge to research and reinvent materials and also investigate how we can reuse them several times over, while making them long lasting and creating minimal waste.

Their patent pending cast moulding technology does not require high amounts of water and energy, or high-temperature ovens to make the final product. This is why carbon footprint is a lot lower than bathroom materials traditionally have. The CO2 emissions per unit are about 80% less when with a similar sized ceramic basin.

All the basins and bathtubs are designed and manufactured in Finland at Woodio’s own factory with a close to carbon neutral manufacturing process.

The Association for Finnish Work has awarded all Woodio products the Key Flag symbol in recognition of products made in Finland. The company, has also been awarded the Design from Finland mark that is awarded to companies that have demonstrably invested in Finnish design.They are proud to carry these awards as a symbol of Finnish work, design and craftmanship.
