– Sala Mater

It is a creative space of FINSA, in Barcelona, which aims through networking, training, dissemination and collaboration, to consolidate the wood sector and design in Catalonia.

From our Sala Mater we want to foster, boost  and collaborate with all those causes, whether individuals, enterprises or initiatives, related with design, industry and innovation.



We are an enterprise with global mindset, but with local conscience. Somos una empresa con  mentalidad global, pero con conciencia local.
We are part of the natural cycle of the forests. We transform one of the most renewable natural resource: the wood.
We bet on sustainable forest management, therefore we use raw material from certified forests.
To transform the wood we use highly efficient processes, mimimizing waste and achieving a balance between the energy we consume and the one we generate.
We are totally transparent about the environmental impact of our products and their ecological footprint along all this stages.
The 100% of the waste are incorporated thanks to recycling, as products in the end of their useful life or as waste of other industries using therefore less natural resources.
