Amami by Reclaimed DesignWorks features charred Accoya® wood burnt in the Japanese style of shou sugi ban. Amami can be used for interior or exterior wall cladding. Accoya® wood is the result of decades of research and development that has brought together a long-established, extensively proven wood modification technique and leading-edge patented technology – acetylation to create a high performance wood, ideal for outdoor use and challenging applications.
ATTRIBUTES OF AMAMI
By significantly enhancing the durability and dimensional stability of fast-growing and abundantly available certified wood species, accoya® wood provides compelling environmental advantages over slow-growing hardwoods (which are often unsustainably sourced), woods treated with toxic preservative chemicals, and non-renewable carbon-intensive materials such as plastics, steel and concrete.
