For 15 years, Biossun has believed in bioclimatic intelligence! As a forerunner in the French bioclimatic pergola market, we are now positioned as an expert in outdoor design. Every day, we reinvent the art of outdoor living with pleasure and conviction. Because Biossun's trajectory is above all a story where our values invite us to innovate and surpass ourselves.
Biossun, a small company based in the Rhône-Alpes region, was born out of a desire to design homes that take better advantage of the natural elements by using bioclimatic protection solutions. Our expertise and unrivalled technology mean that each of our developments is a skilful alchemy of innovative research and design.
Over the years, the Biossun teams have grown to make the dreams of more than 40,000 private individuals come true and to enable more than 4,000 hotel and restaurant professionals to increase their business.
