Woodio is a Finnish sustainable design and materials technology company with a signature material that is the world’s first 100% waterproof solid wood composite. Made from wood chips, Woodio uses their waterproof solid wood composite to make bathroom sinks, bathtubs and other accessory items.
An environmentally responsible company, Woodio integrates sustainability into their whole production process from material sourcing, to manufacturing, and disposal.
Woodio’s patent pending waterproof solid wood material is made with technology, and an innovative combination of wood chips and resin based adhesives. Approximately 80% of the product content is locally sourced wood.
Woodio products are manufactured in Finland at their own factory that is close to being carbon neutral. Their patent pending cast molding technology requires low amounts of energy and water, and the carbon emissions of a Woodio bathroom sink is around 80% less when compared to a similar sized ceramic sink.
The waterproof solid wood composite material is far more durable and resistant compared to other bathroom materials, and has an expected lifespan the same as with any traditional bathroom materials. It is virtually maintenance-free and can be cleaned with a non-abrasive cleaning cloth.
