Surface Bound

22nd February 2010

I was very much looking forward going to the Surface design show last week, as it is the only event to focus exclusively on interior and exterior solutions for building design.

There was such as buzz at the show, I suppose I wasn’t the only one extremely excited at this event. There was so much to take in as they were showcasing hundreds of the most innovative and creative surface products currently on the market.

One of my favourite products at the show was Murapec’s latest interior surface range ‘impressions’. This is a beautiful new range of sculptured decorative panels offering 11 exclusive designs, available in over 50 different laminate finishes.

Ideal for commercial wall coverings and interiors, impressions panels add real impact and atmosphere to any interior space, without cutting back the budget.

For more information take a look at their website, http://www.muraspec.com, you won’t be disappointed!

It can also look great in commercial spaces.

This is one of my favourite Designs

Another favourite product of mine was Krion. This is a new solid surface from Porcelanosa Group. It is very hard, compact, non porous and fully homogeneous. Krion comes in two new versions: Stone and Lux. What’s great about this stone is that it can be fully restored to its original appearance. Even cigarette burns can be removed with normal detergent.

Krion is an ideal surface for kitchens as it has an extraordinary resistance to chemical agents and also to heat and sunlight. What is also fantastic about this product is that it is an anti-bacterial material thanks to its composition, ‘additive free-bacterial product’. Therefore any bacteria present cannot develop and dies.

My favourite aspect of this surface is that seamless joints are created; therefore it gives the illusion that it is made up of a single section.

Krion is available in 86 different finishes. Sounds pretty much like a dream surface…………
