The world’s first bio-material toilet is made from wood – Woodio Block toilet wins Design Plus Award 2023 powered by ISH at Frankfurt am Main.

100% waterproof solid wood composite toilet seat, Woodio Block wins Design Plus Award powered by ISH at Frankfurt am Main in March 2023.

Woodio is a Finnish modern-day interior and design brand that brings together the best of Nordic design traditions and the use of sustainable bio-material innovation in a contemporary way. The company´s world’s first 100% waterproof solid wood composite toilet seat, Woodio Block wins Design Plus Award powered by ISH at Frankfurt am Main in March 2023.

”Woodio offers an ecological alternative to ceramic bathroom products. Based on an innovative wood composite material that we developed in 2017, we make design items such as washbasins, toilets, bathtubs, and wall panels which have considerably reduced CO2 footprint when compared to ceramic products.” says Petro Lahtinen, the Founder and CEO of Woodio. ”Our mission is to change the traditional material norms used in bathrooms and kitchens.”

Woodio Block toilet seat is made of solid wood composite and works the same way as any other toilet – however, having three significant advantages. The secret lies in the impact-resistant Woodio® material, making it practically unbreakable in normal use. Also, the surfaces are easy to keep clean because of the material’s dirt-repellent coating. Thirdly, thanks to the high wood content of the material, the Block toilet feels warm on the skin to sit on. The toilet seat is suitable with most flushing systems on the market according to the EU standard EN 14055: 2010. The Woodio Block toilet seat is designed by Finnish Pentagon Design.

Woodio® material technology is an innovative combination of wood and resin-based adhesives.

In recent years, Finland has become a hotspot for new material innovations. The local companies have been successful in combining the latest technology and high-quality design to create new types of sustainable products.

Woodio® material technology is an innovative combination of wood and resin-based adhesives. The company´s patented cast molding technology does not use high amounts of water or high-temperature ovens to make the final product. The manufacturing process uses mostly renewable resources, including locally sourced aspen and side streams from the Finnish forest industry. All Woodio products are manufactured in Finland at Woodio’s own factory.

”The demand for ecological products is growing rapidly. However, the bathroom sector has currently only been able to come up with solutions for reducing water consumption, but there has not been much progress in the material development side in this regard.” Lahtinen says. “It is important to find responsible alternatives for household products that can be found in every home. That is why we created the Woodio toilet seat, even though it was the most challenging product we have developed so far. The learnings from this project have already opened up many product application possibilities for Woodio technology, that we will launch in the future.”

The Design Plus Awards, which Block Toilet seat has won, rewards future-proof products, which demonstrate an optimum combination of sustainability, aesthetic appeal and functionality and is one of the most prestigious and well-known awards in Germany. The Woodio Block toilet seat will be on display in ISH Frankfurt 13.-17.3.2023 in the Hall 3.0 and Place B95.

Woodio Block is available in ten different Northern nature-inspired colours
