Founded in March 2018, in Lisbon by architect Kate Bombony and woodworker Mike Beck, Woometry focuses on the production of home goods, decorative panels and surfaces from recycled wood.
The studio developed simple geometric shapes that are all produced from salvaged wood. Their collection of functional products range from incense holders to panels that are beautiful, as well as ethical.
Many designers are smart enough to realize the potential of using natural materials like wood for their products, but ideas related to using recycled materials , especially wood are rare. Woometry gives a second life to wood that is otherwise discarded and increases its potential with value. The studio also gives priority to reducing wastage, emissions and water usage. The shipping process does not use plastics, and uses cardboard boxes to create packaging.
The production is done locally to minimize carbon emissions, and improve communication with all involved in the process of production. Woometry aims to contribute to slowly reformulate consumption habits and to increase value of artisan objects. The modular panels of isometric grid patterns , surfboards and incense holder are few of their products, all made from recycled wood using laser-cutting machines.
Since January 2020 Woometry has implemented technologies and partial automation of production processed, enabling them to focus more on recycling and sustainability.
