PineSkins Soft Wall Tiles

WALL TILE COLLECTION MADE FROM RECOVERED PINE BARK FROM THE FORESTRY INDUSTRY

The project

PineSkins Soft Wall Tiles is a collection of sustainable wall tiles made of PineSkins, the bark of pine trees and spanish pine wood. This product creates alternative scenarios for those parts of the tree, that usually are left behind in the forest after the tree is gone, one of them being the bark of the tree. Furthermore, it helps to reveal a new value for local trees apart of wood usage and it embraces local landscape.
The wall-tile system will be sold to B2B partners for interiors such as home, retail shops, restaurants and hotels.
