We should all know by now that rice is used in a variety of different types and recipes. But have you heard anything about wood made from rice? Today on the way to work I came across an interior design firm advertising Resysta. An imitation wood made from rice.
The fiber-reinforced hybrid material is manufactured using approximately 60% rice husks, approximately 22% rock salts and approximately 18% mineral oil . On the one hand, this structure makes it environmentally friendly and, on the other hand, extremely resistant to external influences such as sun, rain, snow or salt water.
I am particularly fascinated by the range of possible uses . Whether outdoor furniture, floor coverings, ship decks, house facades, wellness and wet areas. Resysta is used in all of these areas.
By using rice, the wood imitation is sustainable, can hardly be distinguished from real tropical wood both visually and tactilely, and is therefore a real benefit for our environment .
