Aesthetics and function can truly set the tone for how much time we spend in a space.

What is Pakkawood?
It is a human-made wooden material that is known for its benefits of being exceptionally durable and inert.
Pakkawood or pakka wood is a type of plywood that is also called Staminawood and Colorwood. Moisture is removed well from pieces of wood veneer using a vacuum process. The new wood pieces are then glued together with phenolic resins under high pressure. Many people see this material as a composite product of wood and plastic.
Some are dyed with colored resin to change the color. You can color pakkawood to have the appearance of natural wood such as oak wood or chestnut wood. For a more eclectic appearance, you can use dyes of different colors to create the best rainbow or camouflage designs on your pakkawood material.
The material has a wooden appearance and feel but is resistant to water. The problem with natural wood is that it can split and warp when exposed to moisture. Pakkawood does not have issues like natural wood.
It has high strength and durability and can come in lots of colors due to the addition of dyes. It is also a very dense material due to the high heat and pressure used during the production process.
