TABU (acronym of the family name Tagliabue) was founded in 1927 in Cantù, Italy, in the heart of Lombardy, and it represents today the Italian excellence in the wood dyeing technology. It is present in more than 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 all through its thickness. The SKEENS Tabu boiserie Collection completes the range.
Tabu is 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).
The natural veneer dyeing technology guarantees excellent colour homogeneity and its infinite replicability: the colour certainty is fundamental for an industry. The technology of the multilaminar wood guarantees not only homogeneity of colour but also repeatability of the structure.
Tabu collaborates with planners and designers in several fields such as: residential, commercial, hotels and resorts, congress centres, contract, offices, retail, shipyards and latest generation cars.
