The Sonian Forest is Europe’s greatest urban forest. Sonian Wood Coop works exclusively with this noble material – grown, designed and made in Brussels.
Dedicated to sustainable design and traditional craft skills, our workshop in the heart of Brussels produces custom-designed and custom-built furniture and other woodworking projects.
The Sonian Forest is a formidable source of beech flooring. The wood produced by this forest is the fruit of centuries of hard work. The amazing intrinsic qualities of local beech wood include beautiful color variations and a smooth finish compatible with frequent skin contact.
The Sonian Wood Coop is established as a cooperative company under Belgian law. We are a social and democratic enterprise and this is reflected in our statues: all members of the cooperative have equal voting rights in our general assembly (the principle of “one member, one voice”) and the pay out of dividends and variations in share prices are strictly limited.
The mission of the Sonian Wood Coop is to relocate the transformation of the wood from the Sonian Forest. We closely cooperate with different partners along the value chain and organise the sustainable production of local high-quality wood products. From the purchase of standing trees to the final use in architecture or design projects, our job is to make sure that all steps along the way are as sustainable, local, and qualitative as possible.
