Frequently asked questions​

Woodio brings together the best of Nordic design traditions and the use of sustainable bio-material innovation in a contemporary way. All our products are made from our signature material called Woodio®. It is the world’s first 100% waterproof solid wood composite designed to replace ceramic and stone materials – sustainably. 

Yes, it’s wood! Our wood material technology is the world’s first 100% waterproof wood composite that consists of real wood chips.

The Woodio material is an innovative combination of wood and resin based adhesives. Approximately 80% of the material is solid wood. 

Yes! Woodio is forerunner as a designer for ecologically produced designer products. That is to say, at Woodio we put a strong focus on making sustainable choices throughout the whole production process – from the material itself to manufacturing and disposal.

Woodio products have a significantly lower carbon footprint, throughout the whole product lifecycle, than similar traditional ceramic bathroom fixtures. In fact, 55kg lower per unit. * In addition, our products are disposable as energy waste – meaning that our products can be burned as energy at the end of their lifecycle.

Yes, 100%. The Woodio material and all Woodio products are made from 100% waterproof solid wood composite material with UV, scratch, chemical and dirt resistant coating.

Woodio material is far more impact resistant than ceramic materials , making it practically unbreakable in normal use.

Woodio washbasins are maintenance free and their expected life time is the same as with any traditional bathroom materials – or even longer.

If necessary, clean your Woodio washbasin with a dampened soft cloth and mild non-abrasive dish detergent or soap. However, do not use wool, hard or sharp tools which can stratch the surface of the sink.

Yes! Our current collections include 16 different wooden washbasins that are suitable for both private and public spaces.

Available wood material options are Aspen 2mm, Aspen 5mm and Birch 6mm – depending on the colour or model.

The colour in the final product may vary slightly, because  wood is a natural material. And natural is good, right!
