Metsä Board Magazine – Winter 2023



is a Finnish bathroom furniture manufacturer that is transforming Metsä Board’s side streams into raw material for its design wash hand basins and other bathroom furniture. The company processes birch wood chips from the side streams of the Joutseno BCTMP mill, from which raw material of uniform quality called Natural Birch is sifted. The earthy colour and organic structure of the material give the end product a visual wow factor. Woodio’s wood composite material is manufac- tured with respect for the environment. The bathroom furniture serves as a storage for bio-based carbon and can eventually be utilised as energy waste. The carbon footprint of Woodio’s sink is up to 80 per cent smaller than ceramic sinks, and emissions are also lower in logistics because the material is lightweight.

The side streams provide material for design bathroom furniture.
