BEHIND THE FORMULA
Woodoo’s technology is born from 5 years
of intensive research on new horizon’s
in cellulosic nano-technology
- The research on bionic wood was initiated by our founder during his Master’s degree in Architecture and Materials Science at Harvard University, USA, between 2010 and 2012 and, after 5 years, resulted in many global patents.
- Founded in 2016, the startup has received more than 30 innovation awards (MIT European Innovator of the year, Cleantech Open Global San Francisco, H2020 European Commission…) and is supported by the French Ministries of the Environment, Agriculture and Research, as well as EIT Climate KIC.
- Now at the pre-industrial stage we are working hand in hand with clients in various industries to scale-up and release in 2019 niche-market material integrations, first in the automotive Human-to-Machine Interfaces and in the luxury industry, before reaching out to mass markets in the design and construction industries when the technology will be ready.
Woodoo rethinks the wood material with a unique biotechnological approach, to redefine people interactions with this iconic product of our universal heritage.
Vegetal biology has a still unmastered potential that the technology will reveal.
Exploring the living matter to create unprecedented classes of materials with radically new features.
Bioexploring the wood genome to transcend its native characteristics.
