We make circular paving that is made of 76% recycled raw materials extracted from Urban Mining (= old paving and materials from buildings, that are up for demolishment). With the production of the concrete Cityscapes tiles, we are able to combine our love for design and passion for recycling. This results in a high-quality design tile which is guaranteed to last for years. We are partners with NL Greenlabel for a sustainable outdoor space. The resources of The Right Wae Collection tiles also remain in the circular loop.
Our unique flooring with geometrical shapes are made of 100% production waste from well-known carpet tile producers in the Netherlands. Collaboration contracts have been signed with these pioneers in sustainability to prolong the lifespan of their waste. Choose any colour, shape and size to create a unique flooring that fits any space. With an unique clicking system the separate tiles are joined, providing complete freedom to create any design.
Architects and project upholsterers can present and/or choose a colour palette from our extensive physical supply. Then, the product is manufactured according to the desired design. We collaborate closely with our dealers Gispen, Royal Ahrend and Cantor, who can also submit designs of their own.
The production of Wae’s flooring collection happens in Utrecht and is executed by people with limited job opportunities in our own workplace. Our mission is to employ as many Syrian residence permit holders as possible, offering them a solid base to build a future in the Netherlands.

Tynke van den Heuvel
I am Tynke, founder of Studio Wae. Until now, I have not been able to defeat Nour at ping-pong once and that bothers me. That is why I am secretly practicing. I am good at sharing my passion about sustainable enterprising and new ideas come to me virtually every day, a new form, a new product or a surprising campaign. I am the product developer and jack of all trades in the company.
I am Nour. I like parties and hanging out with friends. I used to be a graphic designer in my homeland, Syria, but now I am head of production. The girls at Studio Wae are trying to hook me up with ‘the cute girl’. I love nature. I take home cuttings whenever I can to grow them into beautiful plants. I am happy to be part of this innovative company and help create sustainable design products.
