The innovative Carving technology from mafi, the Upper Austrian natural wood floor specialist, allows for a surface engraving of different designs on natural oiled wood surfaces. The original design and structure of the wood is combined with a variety of designs in a symbiotic harmony. With this, mafi reinvents the design of floors: this family-run factory combines art with mathematics, nature with geometry, and traditional handicraft with innovation. With the style of this new processing variant, mafi has developed a new product with the "Carving Lipso I", which creates an artful atmosphere of exclusive elegance. Whether installed on the floor, the ceiling or the wall: this natural wood innovation creates a unique atmosphere, both in private and in public areas.
The radiance of the Carving Lipso I is due to the tension-filled play on curved shapes. Thereby, circles and ellipses are always interchanging with each other, which result in either star or ellipse shapes depending on the approach. In this dynamic, the scheme creates an exciting but by no means is agitated mood, the design lively and moderate at the same time. The emerging patterns always extend over two planks and deliver their effect especially in large, spacious rooms. The offset design allows the surface to repeat the pattern and thus appear larger. The micro-fibres between the planks always run through the surface edges, and thus lead the human eye lengthwise across the floor surface. In addition to the innovative optics, mafi’s Carving Lipso I convinces with its unique haptic. The highlight: the dark areas have a different surface texture than the light areas. Through special shading, the brown passages seem almost material like and form a noticeable contrast to the classic wood processing of the lighter areas. This new product is available as a base model in “Oak Clear”, "Oak Country", "Oak Country Vulcano" and "Oak Country Vulcano Medium". In each of these versions of the Carving Lipso I, the natural wood experts at mafi further expand wood flooring trends.
