| NEOLIGN: THE NEW WOOD |
Neolign® is a wood-based, recyclable material developed by WYE. It consists of 83% wood chips, a by-product of the wood industry, paints and polymers.
| No new tree is cut for Neolign® | Our products are made by upcycling by-products of the wood processing industry.
| Recyclable | You want to get rid of your WYE piece? Give it to us, get a credit and we'll make new products out of it. Thanks to Neolign and your help, a bench can later become a stool.
| Responsible | For us, sustainability also means social responsibility. We produce under fair working conditions within Europe and avoid - by short distances and planting new trees - an extra burden on the CO2 balance.
- LINEAR CONSUMPTION IS NOT AN OPTION FOR US -
Make a statement for your home and a sustainable future.
No human work lasts forever and even design does not solve all problems. Creators should have humility towards nature and see it as an example. Not as an inconvenience to be controlled.
The basic idea is that all things that are used are regarded as biological or technical nutrients that circulate in cycles. However, this is not about “zero waste”, because nature knows no waste, everything is nutrient.
Assess and optimize the life cycle of products and processes so that it resembles a natural system in which there is no waste.
We are part of the planet and therefore part of its cycles - we should accept our role in it as human beings.
| Design without compromise |
Neolign® offers the basis for design without compromising between beautiful and healthy living.
| Innovative | Neolign® is unique in look & feel. It smells of wood, is malleable like plastic and free of emissions and pollutants.
| Puristic | The beauty of the design lies in the coherence of the construction. Each element has a clear function. All elements visibly mesh - the design is reduced to the essentials.
| Character | Furniture shows who you are. Our furniture is not only expressed in quality, but also in individual and unique colour.

What is Neolign actually?

Neolign® is not only colored on the surface, but throughout. An advantage of this is excellent repairability.
What is special about Neolign®
Together against wasting resources!
The idea of the circular community corresponds to a value-creating community in which raw materials, including in the form of processed products, remain valuable and can be converted into new monetary values. In our case it works like this:
1. Wood residues, polymers and color pigments are pressed into Neolign® and ...
2. together with steel elements make up your WYE-PIECE .
3. Together you can create healthy, pollution-free living in your home ...
4. ... and makes a statement against fast-furniture and waste of resources through long-term LIVING TOGETHER .
5. By RETURNing to us or a retailer, you will receive a 40% credit towards a new part of the range.
6. With the granulation , your piece becomes the raw material for new furniture again and thus remains valuable.

WYE ('Why') is the important question that leads to the beginning of everything new.
When Neolign® came about, we were both still studying. The idea of a recyclable material made of wood chips, which can be recycled, manifested itself in our crooked shared rooms. This idea continued to grow until it gave birth to WYE and now gives us much more than just a task. It gives us scope for meaning and the great opportunity to make sustainability easy AND aesthetic through innovative design.
