Dear friends, here we are again with our latest Newsletter, dedicated to information and news from the world of Woodn Industries. This Newsletter's focus: the straight line and the curve declined with Versatilis and Ornans.
Suggestions and visions from architects and designers to bring Woodn between art and future.
Enjoy your read!
The straight line: Woodn brise soleil becomes a texture when used in large urban areas, as is the case with the redevelopment of the former industrial area of Novoli in Florence. Woodn’s SPECIES UNICA dresses the buildings designed by Architect Claudio Nardi like a 21st Century “bugnato”. Centuries pass, but the desire to play with matter, sky, light and shadows does not pass. In the following photo gallery a glimpse of how the Renaissance tradition meets the present.

The curve: on the other side of the world, in Mexico City, the architects of Sordo Madaleno firm use Woodn Ornans to create vegetal-like shapes who would appeal to someone like Gaudì, making the best organic architecture dreams come true. There are already four restaurants built inside Woodn wood composite ‘nests’. Among the following images of Sordo Madaleno’s Bajio restaurants chain we shed some famous 20th century buildings that have shaped the history of curves in architecure. You should immediately spot the odd ones out...
The straight line, again, coming back to Italy... and precisely in Milan, between the joints of a special decking, designed to be trampled on by Cinderella’s heels. At the Atelier Caovilla, where Woodn means deck and luxury means a huge terrace overlooking the Duomo and the Alps, the Aeternus profiles’ vanishing points go beyond the skyscrapers and point straight up into the clouds.
