Have you ever heard of a product called Wood Wool?  – It is a versatile, environmentally-aware product that is making its mark it seems in the world of home interior design!

The website www.yankodesign.com reports that Wood Wool, also referred to as ‘Excelsior’ in North America, is in fact soft wood shavings that are bound together by water and cement. This creates a highly versatile material that can be found in packaging, cushioning, insulation, and can even be used stuffing teddy bears.

Wood wool apparently also has a wide variety of features, that make it ideal for also layering walls. Its natural and eco-friendly, and has a low emission footprint. 

A company called ‘Form Us With Love’ has used Wood Wool and produced a range of designer 3D tiles  – and the word is that these tiles apparently do indeed have a great interior décor effect.

The Form Us With Love business, teamed up with the only Swedish manufacturer of wood wool, Traullit, to created an eye-catching, unique hexagonal tile for the design firm Baux.

Available in an absolute variety of colors, the Baux tiles – we are told – make for beautiful visual patterns on walls – as above. Aside from that they regulate moisture as well as temperature, resisting termites and other vermin, and are known to be fireproof/flame-retardant, thanks to a specialized paint coating.

Made from a product that one would normally perceive as waste, Baux employs the Wood Wool in a manner that elevates the aesthetic of a property interior decor, making it a great tool for designers.
