For this airy and light bathroom, Ask og Eng designed and built a custom made bathroom unit in the colour wheat, and built it, as always, in the sustainable material bamboo. Bamboo, which is actually a type of grass, is a sustainable choice as it grows significantly faster than trees, it can actually grow up to a meter per day.

The fast growth means that the bamboo is ready to be harvested after 4-6 years – in comparison to trees that use about 50 years. In addition to this, bamboo during its growth period, absorbs more Co2 than is released during production, something that makes it Co2 neutral over the complete lifecycle. And it grows this fast without using any pesticides, herbicides or artificial fertilizers.
