a:gain has delivered Dybø acoustic boards made from upcycled PET bottles and Hjælmø end grain brick flooring from upcycled discarded pine wood from industrial production.


Dybø acoustic boards

Dybø PET felt is produced from used plastic bottles collected in Europe. It consists of 75% recycled PET and there is no waste in the production as all offcuts are recirculated back into production.

Hjælmø end grain brick flooring

Hjælmø end grain floor is upcycled from offcuts and cut-outs accumulated during the production of pine glulam boards and window frames. The wood is sorted out due to knots, which do not matter in terms of durability and strength when used as a brick floor.
