These are Interwoven Eco-Panels by New York-based Architectural Systems, Inc. The company has tons of green materials for retail, hospitality, and entertainment projects, etc, but these interlocking panels would work as a focal point in a multifamily- or single-family project, too. They come in walnut, maple, and American oak with no VOCs and FSC-certified wood, upon request. Interwoven panels may contribute toward LEED credits for low-emitting materials and certified wood, according to ASI.
