For us here at Slow Wood the use of wood is not only a technical and aesthetic choice but also our passion and the result of a long research effort. In order to make the best use of a complex and varied material like wood, it is necessary to know it well. This is why we go to the source by searching for woods in their countries of origin. We then test and catalog it.

Our xylotheque enhances and spreads knowledge about wood as a material; it is a physical and digital collection of woody species from all over the world. It enables us to get intimately acquainted with the uses, characteristics and problems of each type of wood; it teaches us to work with solid wood and guides us in offering the best solutions for any project.
