We blend nature and technology to design
patented groundbreaking new materials

  • We have developed a technical process to remove the weak lignin parts of a wood board’s structure, replacing the lignin with a custom polymer. The result is a sustainable material with the strength profile of metal and the cost profile of low-grade wood.
  • We are one of the most awarded deeptech startups in Europe, with over 30 accolades since 2017. The company is led by an acclaimed architect and Harvard-trained biochemist. We have generated significant early traction in multiple industries and are engaged through customer pilots with top automotive OEMs and suppliers. 


3x sturdier than wood



low CO2 footprint

low-grade species compatible

fire resistant

dimensionally stable



We transform native wood
into a touch-sensitive surface

We make it translucent,
moldable and recyclable

We aim to reshape the antiquated, trillion dollar automotive and construction materials industries



Our multi-patented breakthrough technology creates an augmented wood that is strong and moldable: for the first time, wood panels can be bent into any shape without breakage. It allows radically new aesthetics for consumer electronics, connected objects, smartphones…

  • Woodoo’s unprecedented new material can be used like touchscreen when connected to electronics.



Driven by the emergence of autonomous driving, as decorative interior trim parts in mobility become interactive, we develop innovative surfaces for the premium car segment and tomorrow for all means of transportation (trains, buses, jets, boats…).

  • As an alternative to glass and plastics, Woodoo offers an immersive on-demand information solution.




Construction materials are running out: we are facing a global shortage of raw materials (steel, sand) and an unprecedented urbanization boom. Being the only construction material that grows by itself and absorbs CO2, wood could be the right solution for the future of building.

  • Woodoo’s materials are needed at a time of environmental strain to build faster, cleaner and higher.
