This lineup of surfacing picks for walls, baffles, panels, countertops, furnishings, and more are made of materials ranging from recycled PET to porcelain enamel.
Wood Collection for Kirei Ink
The Wood Collection for Kirei Ink consists of custom-printed acoustic recycled PET panels and products that combine the warmth of natural wood with the acoustic performance of PET. The collection features five different types of printed wood — Pine, White Wash, Dark Walnut, Gray Wash, and Dark Oak. Kirei Ink is 100 percent customizable and printed in-house so that any print can be applied to Kirei’s products, including baffles, clouds, wall tiles, and more. Kirei Ink is printed on PET felt panels made from 60 percent post-consumer recycled PET.
ICS Wall System
Polyvision ICS Interior CeramicSteel wall systems are made with a durable porcelain enamel surface offering high-performance, engineered architectural panel solutions for a range of commercial interior environments. The smooth, non-porous CeramicSteel surface is naturally resistant to bacteria and viruses along with scratches, stains, graffiti, corrosion, fire, and fading from UV exposure. They are available in a wide range of colors or can be printed using Polyvision’s high-definition printing technology to create customizable graphics and vibrant surface imagery.
Made from renewable, plant-based materials, with FSC-certified paper and water-based inks, Purline is a carbon-neutral flooring that is five times more resistant to abrasion than LVT, as well as stain-proof and extremely easy to clean. Two new classifications — Standard Specification for Heterogeneous Polyurethane Sheet Flooring and Standard Specification for Heterogeneous Polyurethane Tile or Plank Flooring — allow Purline and other polyurethane flooring options with no vinyl or PVC contents to emerge from the resilient category at large as a greener option.
Leaden, one of the newest designs to join the Durasein’s Lively Collection of premium solid surface for commercial, healthcare, and residential settings, has the appearance of weathered sea glass washed up on the beach. Composed of two-thirds alumina trihydrate (derived from bauxite, a natural ore) and one-third high-performance acrylic resin and pigments, the Durasein surfacing is an antibacterial, stone-like material that can be shaped with standard woodworking tools. The materials are also resistant to mold and mildew, along with being food safe, non-toxic, non-porous, and low V.O.C.
Form at Wood
The first designer line by Form at Wood, the Impressions collection of 3-D square wood panels was designed by Karim Rashid as three-dimensional concave indentations that can be reconfigured in many variations to create walls with depth and texture. The front of the 25-by-25-cm panels is decorated with subtle indentations made from engineered plywood and sustainably harvested oak, American walnut, and ash wood that play with light and shadow to give greater depth and dimension to spaces.
