MADE Milan - Materials Report Part 2/3


Here are our discoveries from the second day of the MADE expo in Milan, the fair that makes every materials fetishist's heart beat faster...including ours.
 

Barrisol foils work with a patented system. The combination of foil products (available in different surface finishes, among them transparent, flocked and lacquered), with very different profiles and fixing mechanisms, make possible complex stretch-ceiling systems, room objects, wall coverings and lots more.

Benetti, originally a producer of ceramics, began experimenting with marble in the 1980s. The design of Benetti's products feature a tension between the look of their surfaces and the actual material from which they are made. A metallic sheen, in combination with stone veining, or a textile texture with a stone look are some of the fascinating, if slightly confusing, examples from the collection.

KuEI's product range addresses every surface in the room: from floor and wall coverings to acoustic elements and laminated glass. What's interesting is that KUEI can create a graphic theme on each of its surfaces, using a materially suitable type of print or a coating. The designs are brought to the curved surfaces. KuEI offers a palette of patterns, but can easily be tailored to the individual wishes of the customer.
