Wood and engineered wood are made flexible with a patented incision process. Complex incisions allow textile-like properties plus create transparency and sound absorption unexpected from wood products.
The incisions of Janus are cut on both sides, allowing thicker boards bend around a tight radius. These sheets are 2.5 centimeters (1 inch) in thickness and since the sheets look identical on both sides, freestanding partitions are possible. Available in standard sheet sizes in seven wood types in natural or finished.

Based in Zürich, Switzerland, Dukta has its roots in wood bending experiments. During a training course led by Serge Lunin in 2007, Christian Kuhn had the idea to create a lounger made from curved wooden elements. Together they tested alternatives including steam bending and gluing layers together but found that certain arrangements of incisions gave the wood a great deal of flexibility. Now headed by the father and son team of Serge and Pablo Lunin, Dukta was founded in 2011 and works with licensed partners throughout the world.
