There are numerous materials for buildings and decorations, but some of the latest and perhaps most modern are Kebony (Wikipedia).
Kebony is wood treated with biofuel from sugar production, which gives wood more strength and reduced maintenance needs.
The material is suitable for facades, porches, terraces, ladders and fences – and is an alternative to endangered hardwoods.
Kebony has been used in several major projects in Norway; Among other things, the new Carl Berner and National Theater metro stations, Le Canard restaurant and Pilestredet Park in Oslo write innodesign. no.
Seilas has tested Kebony as an alternative to teak, and the result of the test was that Kebony suited at least as good as teak.
The manufacturer of Kebony has won several awards for innovation, including more environmental prices. Kebony is also Swan-labeled.
It’s not just Kebony that is suitable for building. Below we have collected good examples of Norwegian materials.
