Organoid Technologies GmbH
The registered word mark Organoid is a composition of ‘organic’ – means natural, in natural condition – and the ancient Greek suffix ‘–oid’ for resembling, like. The combination Organoid Technologies indicates the various possibilities of their platform technology.
In 2012 – after three years of intensive research and development – Martin Jehart and Christoph Egger founded the company Organoid Technologies GmbH. In these start-up years first results were already achieved in furniture constructions (IOYO seating furniture), small series (MAIA trays) and 3D acoustic insulations (hemp panels).
Their patented technology was represented on many fairs and congresses worldwide and received positive feedback which is reflected in the large number of awards.
In February 2014 the first product group was presented to the international visitors at the EuroShop in Dusseldorf/GER – the Organoid Decorative Coatings.
Organoid Decorative Coatings are characterized by their naturalness and authenticity. They allow a new experience of natural raw materials through all the senses as the surface is untreated and therefore also the scenting characteristics are preserved.
Organoid only uses natural and authentic raw materials which are not used in conventional production processes. In their factory in the Tyrol – in the heart of the Alps – they pay attention to ecological and sustainable manufacturing. This begins with the use of a 100% green electricity and ends with Organoid’s biological binders that are free of biocides, plasticizers and solvents.
Only in this way does Organoid reaches the unique appearance with genuine scent, natural haptics, and impressive optics. Enjoy the unique authentic scent of hand-cut alpine hay from an altitude of 1,700 m above sea level, grown on the hillsides of the Wildspitze, the highest mountain in Tirol. Handcrafted lovingly piece by piece.
Organoid surfaces can be arranged and individually executed from all natural base materials and as desired. Raw materials (plants from the construction site or byproducts from own production) also can be supplied, which then will be dried, ground, screened, and pressed as a mixture. At present, Organoid has approximately 500 different raw materials available, from alpine rose blossoms and saffron to lemon grass.
There are no limits even for imaginative customer wishes: A perfume manufacturer needs panels with jasmine scent for the showcases of his worldwide shops. A luxury hotel in Tirol requires specially arranged surfaces from grasses and blossoms of its surroundings. A bakery chain is interested in decorative panels coated with spelt husks.
The products can be individualized not only by different raw materials and their further processing, but also by use of different carrier materials. The standard is flame-resistant HPL, so that the entire construction is flame-resistant. The surface WILDSPITZE (hand-cut alpine hay from an altitude of 1,700 m above sea level thus reaches Class B s1 d0 according to EN 13501-1.
In this way, Organoid Technologies can also coat flexible fleeces and textiles, paper, metals, and plastics in addition to all wood materials and thus can adapt the semi-finished products completely individually to the requirements. Thus it is possible to produce lamps as well as highly absorbing acoustic panels with surfaces with natural scents. Some F&E products are advanced in various fields, but already now Organoid’s capabilities have received worldwide interest, which also is reflected by the quantity and quality of the received awards.
At their headquarter in the West of the Tyrol are currently 10 employees working (800m², production and administration).
