woodfood story

Junno Design is a collaboration between Junn Chee, an industrial designer from Malaysia, and Anton Nöffke, a South African with extensive experience in management and sales.

Sharing a love of nature and good design, they want to contribute to the preservation of Southeast Asia's dwindling rainforests by reusing wood recovered from old houses and buildings in Malaysia to create their products. Their business concept is to use environmentally friendly, salvaged materials wherever possible, and to express this in contemporary design products that blend various cultural influences and natural elements.

Junno Design was established in Ipoh, Malaysia and started manufacturing cutting boards and furniture made from salvaged wood under the Tree&Co brand in 2012. In October 2016, the company was selected as a promising startup by Fukuoka City, Japan, and in December of the same year, Junn and Anton moved to Japan and established Junno Design LLC in Fukuoka, Western Japan. In February 2017, the company started manufacturing wood and leather care products (waxes, oils and applicators) in Japan.

Junno Design LLC was granted the trademark wood food by the Japan Patent Office in 2018, and the brand continues to expand and attract attention in markets such as Japan, Korea and Europe.

In 2021, we established a branch office in Seoul, South Korea and started to sell our wood food products on our Korean website www.woodfood.kr.
