The right floor for your showroom – transporting emotions with a wooden floor in the M3 Lichtdesign Showroom.


For Wolfgang Mayer, Owner & Managing Director of M3 Lichtdesign, it was important to find a high-quality flooring which, just like the selected M3 products, combines not only functionality and design but also high quality.

Customers must feel comfortable in a showroom. With mafi you even feel at home. That is why it was only logical for us to install the proven mafi quality in our new Franzosenhaus Way Showroom, and we are very happy with our mafi "Oak Wild". "

Showroom design at the highest optical level with the mafi Oak Wild

What was needed was a durable parquet with spectacular optics and great robustness. The choice quickly fell on the mafi Oak Wild which, with its unique surface image, blends perfectly with the design lighting exhibited in the Upper Austrian showroom. Large knots and hand-worked, wide cracks run through every single plank, which were then skilfully composed in the floor installation and with a lot of feeling for the room. The strong contrast between the warm colour of the Oak and its dark accents underlines the motto of the lighting designer - the perfect play on light and shade.

"For me, mafi counts as an elite in the field of natural wood floors. And precisely because, in our field of light, we always place emphasis on emotions, I see the interaction with a high-quality, highly emotional floor as very important. Customers must feel comfortable in a showroom. With mafi you even feel at home. That is why it was only logical for us to install the proven mafi quality in our new Franzosenhaus Way Showroom, and we are very happy with our mafi "Oak Wild". "

A sturdy country house plank for commercial areas

Commercial areas represent the supreme discipline of robustness in the flooring industry. For this reason, we recommend using hard wood species such as Oak or Ash. The plank structure says a lot about the robustness and durability of the floor and is a critical factor in the correct selection of floors for highly frequented areas.

The mafi typical 3-layer symmetrical construction consists of the top and back layers from the same wood in the same thermo treatment. This results in an equally strong counter-move, which greatly reduces the movement of the wood (swelling and shrinkage behaviour) and thus guarantees extreme robustness and durability.

Slip resistance as a topic in showroom and shop design

The brushed and oiled surface of the mafi wooden planks is classified as R11 for anti-slip and is thus at the top of its class in the industry. The natural characteristic of wood has a certain, general slip resistance, as long as it is not artificially coated with a layer, such as varnish, wax or UV oil. mafi relies on an unadulterated wood surface and ennobles the planks with natural oils that dry in the air and soak into the wood without forming a layer. 

In addition, mafi floors are brushed. In the course of this brushing, the floor gets a light and pleasant feel, and this improves the slip resistance even further.
