TABU was founded in 1927 in Cantù, Italy, in the heart of Lombardy, and it represents today the Italian excellence in wood dyeing technology. It is present in over 60 countries worldwide: it produces natural dyed veneers and multilaminar wood veneers collected in the extraordinary 555.18 Collection, industrial inlays (Burls & Graffiti Collection), three-dimensional surfaces (Groovy Collection), and lines of wood floors with the upper layer dyed throughout its thickness. The SKEENS Tabu boiserie collection completes the range.
It is hard to summarize 90 years of the US. The life of a centenarian company is sometimes similar to a novel, a long adventure of men, discoveries, travels, adventurers, and generations…. whose success is the passion to pass the baton to the next generation.
TABU (acronym of the family name Tagliabue) was founded three generations ago, and it is an authentic sartoria del Legno developing considerably the secrets of the dyeing technology applied to dozens of wood species.
The natural veneer dyeing technology guarantees excellent color homogeneity and infinite replicability: color certainty is fundamental for an industry. The technology of the multilaminar wood guarantees not only homogeneity of color but also the repeatability of the structure.
Homogeneity and repeatability are the two keywords of the wood dyeing technology developed by TABU: in our company, grey, brown, and beige have hundreds of shades applied to dozens of wood species. There is, of course, no shortage of yellow, orange, red, green, light blue, blue, and purple wood? Yes, wood! Noble, certified, dyed throughout its thickness, silky and velvety touch for luminescence and iridescent of the surface.
We are the only world manufacturer to produce natural wood veneers, natural dyed wood veneers, and multilaminar wood veneers, with Italian quality standards and by guaranteeing the processing of wood coming from legal and certified forests (mainly in North America and Europe).
TABU has given to the international community the design of the “RED BOX 555”, the widest world collection of natural dyed wood veneers and multilaminar wood veneers for Interior designs: a summa, a unique concentrate of technology applied to wood, a must on the shelf of each design studio.
