Innovation : Marketed / Broadcasted

Marcello was fed up with seeing ancient trees cut down produce chipboard and plywood, so he created a new material that takes part in the circular economy and protects the Amazon rainforest.


Marcello is a close friend of Simon Velez, another of our pioneers. Their caustic humour and visionary outlook left us wanting more!
