East Asia


Light to pale brown, tends to darken


The so-called nodes, the knots in bamboo, give the wood its unmistakable texture.


A particularly ecological, fast-growing raw material: this wood, which is used in South and East Asia primarily for building houses and bridges, scaffolding, etc., is becoming more and more popular in the west for parquet, kitchen furniture and interior finishing.

This newcomer to the range of wood brings a touch of the Asian way of life and an exotic feel to rooms. For the Japanese, it is a symbol of soft melancholy.

Did you know ...

... that managed forests, thanks to their high proportion of young, strong, growing trees, enable CO2 to be extracted?

... that an old, unmanaged forest produces as much CO2 through processes of decomposition and decay as it stores, and that therefore an unmanaged forest contributes nothing to reducing global CO2?
