W—S conscious design principles

Thanks to our patented technology, all our production, and design methods are sustainable from both an environmental and social perspective.

1. Functional intelligence

To ensure quality and sustainability in production processes and work sites, we commit to the following objectives:

  • Fostering close collaboration and transparency with partners and manufacturers.
  • Using local materials wherever possible to minimize our environmental impact.
  • Using long life materials that are certified or materials from suppliers with an environmentally-conscious focus.
  • Smart production with less material waste
  • Flat shipping

2. Dry assembly

WOOD-SKIN® designs remain functional over time, thanks to a dry assembly method tested over years of projects and installations. This, in addition to allowing rapid installation, allows for an equally rapid dismantling of the surface without affecting its technical and aesthetic properties. 

This solution, studied and perfected over a long period, allows WOOD-SKIN membranes to be reused for new and different applications.

3. Attention to detail

We support and collaborate on projects that redefine boundaries within the building industry by developing environmentally friendly solutions.

4. Diffuse manufacturing

In the future, WOOD-SKIN will be even more sustainable. Thanks to the digital nature of our patented process, one of our future aims is to achieve “zero kilometer” production. This will allow us to:

  • sustain local production and manufacturing
  • use local resources
  • avoid long-distance shipments
  • reduce emissions
