In the quest for as innovative a product as possible, Omgi has sought partners who share their vision of creating sustainable alternatives. For cladding and terrace, Svanemarket wood from Norwegian Kebony is used. We spoke with Country Manager in Norway, Mette Valen at Kebony to explore the collaboration and their role in shaping the sustainable design of the future.

- Omgi is a player that shows good ability to show innovative thinking and concrete action around innovation and sustainability. Therefore, it is also a natural partner for us.

Kebony is a leading producer of modified wood based in Skien. They are particularly known for the Swan brand cladding and decking that offer durable and sustainable solutions with minimal maintenance and with a long warranty.

- From cradle to grave, there is zero emission of toxins from our products and they last a long time. The fact that there is no need to surface treat the material gives consumers great predictability and peace of mind.

Kebony's patented technology gives wood the same strength and durability as tropical tree species, thus addressing both carbon emissions and deforestation. This has led the Financial Times to recognize the company as the best in manufacturing and construction in 2023. Mette Valen is confident that the products fit into Omgi's vision of becoming part of nature well.

- The materials become place-patinated and eventually acquire a silver-gray patina that architecturally glides very nicely into nature. Unlike treated material, Kebony will slip seamlessly into its surroundings, making it fit just as well along a rocky cliff as it does on a plateau.
