Motivations for crafting refreshing wooden products and the inspirations behind them at the newly opened ZiWoo Galleria.

The expansive new ZiWoo Galleria caters to clients and architects, offering a diverse range of interior solutions. From European Engineered flooring by Castrowood Floors to reclaimed wood and resin tables, as well as art sculptures and paintings from local artisans, this store is a one-stop destination for discerning design enthusiasts.

Tell us a bit about your brand and why did you start this new store?

ZiWoo is the result of a unique collaboration between two industry leaders – Zion Impex, boasting 17 years of expertise in the wood floor industry, and Woodology, renowned for crafting exquisite resin wood table tops. Having solidified our position in the wood floor industry through a successful partnership with CastroWood Floors Portugal, we sought to introduce a new vertical that complements our existing product line, offering customers a refreshing addition to enhance their homes.

What is the specialization of this store and the products you retail?

ZiWoo specializes in crafting resin and wood tables from reclaimed wood, giving discarded pieces a new lease on life. No trees are cut for our tables, as the wood used is, on average, 25-40 years old, ensuring sustainability and unique character in every piece.

How do you collaborate with architects to create customer panels?

Our tables are easily customizable to suit the specific needs and preferences of architects and designers. For those seeking inspiration, our pre-made and displayed tables are sure to captivate, often becoming the focal point around which entire room designs evolve.

Do you sell only panels or furniture too?

Currently, we exclusively retail wood and resin table tops, with no plans to expand our product range beyond this unique offering.

What is your process of working and delivery periods?

With a range of ready-to-use table tops available for immediate delivery, customized orders have a production time of approximately one month, ensuring a balance between efficiency and bespoke craftsmanship.

Do you mass produce or custom make?

We do not engage in mass production due to the challenge of finding reclaimed wood that meets our standards. Instead, each piece is meticulously crafted, resulting in a custom and unique work of art.

Have you worked on any projects so far?

While we’ve successfully executed numerous projects across India, our Mumbai showroom marks our inaugural exclusive space, showcasing our commitment to delivering exceptional design.

Are there are brands in this segment? If yes, how do you differentiate yourself?

While many are familiar with resin table manufacturing, our differentiator lies in our ready-to-use collection. Our deep involvement in selecting wood blocks, resin colors, patterns, and finishes ensures a curated range designed by us, making our products stand out in the home and office furniture market.

What kind of spaces are your products ideal for?

Our tables are ideal for both dining spaces in homes and creating an exceptional work experience in office settings.

Any suggestions on why should people visit your store?

Our table tops offer a unique and enjoyable dining and work experience. In addition, our curated selection includes European wood flooring and art for walls, making our store a comprehensive destination for contemporary home decor needs.

Can you share your background and experience in this field?

Zion Impex in the span of 17 years, we have established collaborations with multiple European companies and recently partnered with Castrowood Floors, a leading European Wood Floor manufacturer. Woodology, with over 5 years of experience, has been at the forefront of designing and crafting resin wood tables and artistic wood-based panels.
