ONEWOOD is a new generation of solid wood with excellent technical properties.
The building material consists of wood fibres from fast-growing tree species, which are formed into solid blocks in a special process and then cut to smaller formats.
Visually, ONEWOOD resembles valuable tropical woods such as Balau, Chengal, teak or ironwood - but in fact not a single one of these trees had to be cut to produce ONEWOOD.
Timber Concept is distributor of this fascinating product in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
