Mater Nova | Upcycled 3D Beech Waste Veneer

By Mater


Nova is designed by the Danish design studio ARDE. Nova means ‘new’ and refers to the innovative and sustainable technique of moulding 3D veneer. The chair is made of recycled excess pieces of beech veneer, sliced and glued together in a delicate and patented process – thus creating a textual and organic looking surface. The result ensures a beautiful exploitation of raw materials and minimizes the amount of waste in veneer production. The 3D veneer allows for the design to shape the wooden chair in a comfortable, light and organic shape.
