The company produces optimized elements with minimal waste of material since the manufacturing process can be studied and virtually tested. A simple assembly mechanism allows local workers to install the finished claddings themselves, erasing intermediate substructures. Moreover, WOOD-SKIN products enjoy a flat shipping method and eight weeks lead time for deliveries everywhere on the globe.
‘When a material, rigid in its nature, becomes flexible, ductile, almost pliable, it is necessarily the fruit of an intuition. WOOD-SKIN® was born this way, from a new attitude toward the act of creating projects, an innovative mixture of different factors: theoretical and practical know-how, technical and creative predisposition, the fusion of digital technology and artisanal skills. In a nutshell, WOOD-SKIN® merges architectonical research and the background of animation that inspired its inventors to give life, movement and new functions to rigid materials.’ WOOD-SKIN team, 2014
