The idea for the Coral OAK Collection comes from the sustainable philosophy of optimum resource utilisation of the tree trunk. Thus, mafi creates product lines and designs based of the natural characteristics of the wood. Cracks are one characteristic of wood. Earlier dismissed as inferior, we realised the potential of this type of material.
The existing cracks are hand finished and harmonised during the production. By this, we mean a gentle correction of the cracking and a wide to thin cracking pattern running in the plank direction. Finally, these areas are then sealed with matching putty variant.
Specifically, the Coral OAK white option in combination with the white oiled surface results in a very harmonious design which is striking only on the second glance. Where the planks are also installed in the walking direction, the coloured inclusions literally attract people into the room. Thus, the mafi Coral floors are also more appealing in commercial areas such as showrooms and hotels. So, these extraordinary floorboards adorn the rooms of the porcelain manufacturer Nymphenburg and the 4 star Superior Gmachl Wellness Hotel. We also believe in this product and therefore show it across large areas of the mafi Flagship store in Graz.
