Myco Board

Current applications: furniture components and work surfaces

​MycoBoard is a premium, customizable, certified sustainable engineered wood. It is bound together using mycelium—“nature’s glue”—which is formaldehyde-free, safe, and healthy. This versatile, non-toxic engineered wood, which offers acoustic and fire-resistant properties, can be molded into custom shapes or pressed into boards, making it an ideal solution for the architectural and design community.
