Wood and the Human Health
"A recent study at the University of British Columbia and FPInnovations has established a link between wood and human health. In the
study the presence of visual wood surfaces in a room lowered sympathetic nervous system (SNS) activation. The SNS is responsible for physiological stress responses in humans. This result opens the door to a myriad of stress-related health benefits that the presence of wood may afford in the built environment. The application of wood to promote health indoors is a new tool for practitioners of evidence-based design."

Wework re-defined the way we work when they launched back in 2010. Their vision was to create a community that transcended the shared workspace environment. Since their launch, they have expanded with locations around the world. Stikwood is proud to have our reclaimed and sustainable wood wall planking included in so many wework spaces from New York to Seattle.
