WOODSKIN

Pelle-Forma-2

WOODSKIN @ Mammafotogramma via WIRED.

Woodskin is a composite material, developed and patented by our design firm. This highly flexible surface – a sandwich of Russian plywood and vinyl mesh – was created by a process of excavation with a CNC cutting machine. By dividing the rigid plan of wood into small triangle, the material is freed – able to be shaped as the maker desires. This approach renders a wooden surface malleable, not just for decorative purposes, but also as solid and functional covering system for interiors and design.

This material hold an endless potential to absorb ideas and possibilities that reflect the dynamics of the space they occupy. Recognizing this potential allows to re-conceive and re-build spaces inspired by the malleability of this elegant, durable and strong material.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Note that boat builders have been using stuff like this for years. Search for Baltek and Airex, for instance. The triangles are a nice touch.

  2. This is cool – except for the patent part.

    Is this really patentable? What part of it? A triangle mesh is certainly not patentable, and I’m pretty sure I’ve seen similar uses of plywood (which doesn’t mean it’s not patentable, but it is prior art)
