MOSO develops and creates bamboo products for interior and exterior applications that meet the highest technical requirements and quality standards, enhance the beauty of applications and are made from the sustainable, renewable resource Moso bamboo.
With 25 years’ experience in the relatively young bamboo industry, MOSO is recognised as the global A-brand in bamboo because of its focus on product quality, innovation and sustainability. With an international team and partners in more than 50 countries, MOSO is continuously looking for new applications and solutions that can be made with the fastest growing plant of the world. The proof is the impressive list of reference projects showcasing endless possibilities with MOSO Bamboo Products.
Since its creation in 1997, MOSO's main values have been the following:
- Sustainability: more than just a trend, we believe that MOSO Bamboo Products are one of the most promising alternatives for sustainable building. In the world of architecture, sustainability is also at the centre of attention. All MOSO Bamboo Products can be credited for various ecological certifications such as: LEED, BREEAM, HQE, Green Star and DGNB. Several environmental reports are available and, to be fully transparent about the real sustainability of our products, Environmental Product Declarations (EPD’s) for MOSO Bamboo Products can be downloaded from our website; as well as the Life Cycle Analysis of our materials. Other certifications are available upon request regarding indoor emissions and FSC certification.
- Innovation: Bamboo as a material source is not innovative, it’s what you do with it that makes it innovative. Together with customers, architects and bamboo experts we continuously work on product improvements and new applications. MOSO has a proven track record in innovation. What started as a company importing bamboo flooring, quickly developed into being a coproducer to meet European requirements. Soon other bamboo materials for various indoor applications were added to the still extending range, from fire resistant curved bamboo ceiling panels to outdoor decking and cladding boards. Whether you visit the International Airport of Madrid (design by Richard Rogers and Lamela), Hotel Jakarta in Amsterdam (designed by SeARCH) or CityLife Shopping District in Milan (design by Zaha Hadid), you will find yourself surrounded with MOSO Bamboo Products giving the buildings a distinctive natural ambience.
- Quality: Product quality is crucial for the acceptance of a relatively new product like bamboo. A key precondition for MOSO’s success has always been its control over the production process. By establishing a professional organisation in China, where bamboo grows and is engineered, the quality and availability of the MOSO Bamboo Products is always safeguarded. Unlike many other European companies sourcing in China, our team is not just purchasing, but they are involved in the production process from A to Z. Production in ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified facilities further guarantees compliance with strictest health, safety and environmental regulations. MOSO International BV gives, depending on the type of product, a product guarantee for a period of up to 30 years.
