Liquid beech wood
Functions like plastic, but is made from wood!The case itself might look like plastic (and indeed it functions pretty similarly), but it is actually made from a very clever wood-based bioplastic. Liquid wood shifts shape and solidifies like plastic, it has the precision, flexibility and durability of plastic with the 100% recyclable, renewable, tactile and aesthetic advantages of wood, in a single new material. This clever material is lightweight, water resistant and strong, but at the end of its life will biodegrade and can be home-composted or even burnt.

How is Liquid Wood made? Liquid wood is made from a leftover part of trees that is unused. During the paper-making process – over 100 million pounds of its main ingredient are created as a simple side-effect of the existing pulp (paper-making) industry. This leftover is combined with natural resins, flax and fibers that can be injected into molds.
