Meet the Brand: Knotwood

Meet the Brand: Knotwood

As Knotwood gear up to exhibit at this year's highly anticipated ArchiBuild Expo, their team offers insights into their innovative approach to blending the beauty of timber with the durability of aluminium. From their pioneering techniques in wood grain finishes to their commitment to sustainability, Knotwood stands out in the market with its attention to detail and dedication to quality. Join us as we delve into their latest collaborations, upcoming product launches, and their perspective on design trends shaping the architectural landscape in 2024.

Can you give us a brief introduction to your brand?

Knotwood is a global leader and pioneer in wood-like modular aluminium profiles. Our systems bring together the natural beauty and timeless appeal of timber with the many capabilities of aluminium. Knotwood uses a state of the art sublimation process to create a wood-alternative that is quick and easy to install, more durable and focussed around sustainability. 

What differentiates your brand from other competitors in the market?

The Knotwood difference is in the finer details. Knotwood is Australian owned and made, an original pioneer in the wood grain aluminium industry. At the forefront of innovation, we pride ourselves on the durability of our state of the art aluminium systems, and the detailed quality of our beautiful wood grain finishes. Although the detail is not only direct to our product, but also direct to our community and environment. We pride ourselves on driving positive actions toward sustainability and our social impact. Knotwood is stunning aluminium and more.

What can our visitors expect to see and experience on your stand at ArchiBuild Expo?

There’s no better way to experience the beauty of Knotwood than in person. We welcome visitors to our stand where they’ll discover our extensive range of wood grain aluminium solutions. Our friendly team are excited to demonstrate our modular systems in action and present the array of wood grain finishes we have on display.

Are there any exciting trends that you are seeing in the world of design this year?

Nature has always had a profound influence on architecture and design, and it’s very exciting to see this influence reach new heights in recent times. This has been exemplified with the trend of biomimicry, where human-designed structures aim to replicate the forms and behaviours found in the natural world (and in some cases integrating into the natural environment). This movement is important in architecture as it attempts to reconnect people with the natural environment and reintroduce nature into our built environments. Knotwood is an ideal choice for biomimetic architecture as we harness the look and feel of natural timber, while improving durability and providing a wood alternative.

Could you highlight any recent collaborations or projects that have been particularly impactful for your brand?

We have recently had the exciting opportunity to collaborate with the talented former The Block contestants turned full time renovators, Kyal and Kara, on their latest renovation series ‘Bay Builds’. Working alongside the incredible design and building teams that bring these homes to life has been an absolute pleasure. It’s then truly rewarding to sit back and marvel at the result when these homes are presented to their audience.

Are there any product launches we can expect to see at ArchiBuild Expo this June?

We are excited to announce that we will be showcasing a range of new products at ArchiBuild Expo this June. Among them are three innovative batten systems: the Trapezoid Batten, Dome Batten and the Triple Batten Panel system. In addition, we’ll be unveiling our new aluminium Decking system and introducing a new range of Stone colours. We can’t wait to share with the ArchiBuild Expo and the world.

What are you looking forward to the most at ArchiBuild Expo?

We are thrilled to be back at ArchiBuild Expo this year and eager to showcase what Knotwood has to offer. The opportunity for face-to-face time with industry professionals and visitors is incredibly valuable to us. We appreciate being able to gain industry insights and feedback from our peers, allowing us to continually improve our brand and offerings.
