Kebony - The New Wood

Kebony is a sustainable alternative to tropical hardwood when beauty and performance are essential.

Developed in Norway, the Kebony technology is an environmentally friendly, patented process, which enhances the properties of sustainable softwood with a bio-based liquid. The process permanently modifies the wood cell walls giving Kebony premium hardwood characteristics and a rich brown colour. Suitable for interior and exterior applications that demand high performance and a refined look, Kebony is available in clear and character grade.

After exposure to sun and rain the wood develops a natural silver-gray patina. Performance is maintained while beauty is enhanced. Recognised as a Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum and four times Global Cleantech 100 listing, Kebony has been embraced by leading international architects and developers, which are served through a global sales and distribution network.

Kebony is an Oslo-based Norwegian company that produces superior quality wood and aims to be a leading wood brand. Founded in 1997, its aim originally was to modify wood in an environment-friendly way based on a research at the University of New Brunswick, Canada. With the company’s headquarters in Oslo and its production factory is in Skein, Kebony caters to its various subsidiaries in Norway, Denmark, and Sweden. The company also has sales representatives in Germany, France, Italy, the United Kingdom, and the United States and a wide distribution network around the globe.
