100% industrial upcycling
Minimalistic statement pieces
Gerhard Retter Austrian maître and sommelier
The furniture-startup sets new ecological standards with high demands on design and quality. WYE has developed an innovative wood-based material, which is a waste product of the wood industry. The material is called Neolign and consists out of 85% PEFC-certified wood fibers. This means, that no tree is felled for Neolign.
Each piece is also free of harmful substances, in particular formaldehyde - a substance which is often used in wood production. Products are made in Europe in order to ensure short transport routes. By upcycling wood shavings, each product reduces further tree clearance and thus CO2 as well as the unnecessary exploiting of resources.
WYE takes it to another level and offers a special cradle-to-cradle return cycle, in which products are 100% recycled: If a costumer returns a product, he receives a credit note and the Neolign can directly be reprocessed into new creations. Beveled surfaces and a striking color scheme is characteristic for WYE's award-winning designs.
