Wood is one of the most valuable natural products. Every tree and every type of wood has its own individual characteristics and shows the traces of evolution. Carefully hand-selected veneer and excellence in high level wood processing are the basis for an innovative material with incredible softness, a luxury look and an impressive texture. The result is NUO.
The innovation lies in creating a completely new material out of wood that is hugely soft and flexible. NUO is a patented material made from thin sheets of wood which are bonded to a fabric or a different backing using an environmentally friendly adhesive. Micro laser cutting turns selected woods into a unique soft material experience.
We are driven by passion to think beyond. To forge a new path. We believe in a new culture which fuses our passion for design, innovation and sustainability in a unique way. After years of development influenced by Italian style and German technology, we have created a completely innovative material.
NUO is characterized by its claim to sustainability. All the wood that is processed comes from forests that are managed ethically and with respect for the whole ecosystem. FSC® certification guarantees the traceability and origin of the wood. NUO is environmentally friendly, biodegradable and 100% animal free. NUO reduces the kg CO2 emitted into the atmosphere by about 60% compared to a square meter of leather
By turning hand-selected wood into an innovative material solution we create new scope in fashion, interior and automotive design. An impressive experience and a new dimension of inspiration and creativity.
