The perfect wooden floor for open living and dining areas


Wooden floor in the kitchen or rather tiles. There is a need for these products and we have the perfect solution. Probably not surprisingly, mafi natural wood floors can of course be installed in kitchen areas. An example of how harmoniously the connection between living room and kitchen can be carried out with the help of the same floor is this private apartment from Austria.   Although the transition is additionally indicated by a transversely laid plank, the two rooms fit seamlessly together. The choice of flooring also plays a special role in this context. The coral oak, black brushed and naturally oiled, is particularly eye-catching with its elongated and hand-finished cracks. But it is precisely this appearance that supports the flowing and airy transition between the rooms and creates a holistic concept.   The planks in this object were also planed by hand in order to create recesses on different parts of the planks and to develop a particularly tactile character.   The same rules apply to everyday life in the kitchen with a wooden floor as with any other mafi natural wood floor. Regular treatment with warm water and wood floor soap care for the floor and make it more and more resistant in the long run. If a larger problem should occur, our special Spotstop cleaner and degreaser are available.   PS: Cooking - perhaps barefoot - on a mafi natural wood floor is far warmer and more pleasant than any stone tile could ever be.

A small bottle as a great symbol for sustainability


The mafi management gives its employees a glass bottle at Christmas time. But not just any bottle, but a bottle with "soul".   The "soul bottle" stands for the same values that mafi has: Respect for our nature. About 70 percent of our earth's surface is covered with water. But did you know that in every square kilometer of the sea, hundreds of thousands of small and large pieces of plastic waste are floating? 30 million tons of plastic end up in our oceans every year. (Quelle: Greenpeace vom 12.12.2017) But for us humans this pollution now also has consequences. Billions of people worldwide drink water that is contaminated with tiny plastic particles. Also in popular food fish smallest plastic particles were found. WE HAVE TO ACT Each of us can help to avoid plastic waste: 1. Don´t use plastic wrappers or plastic bags! 2. Separate the waste properly to facilitate sorting and recycling. 3. Renounce toothpaste or cosmetics with microplastic. Use real natural cosmetics instead. RESPONSIBILITY BEYOND THE PRODUCT Sustainable thinking and climate protection are things that we and our employees daily live. The whole mafi company is geared to work as environmentally friendly as possible. So mafi always use the whole tree. The sawdust and off-cuts serve as both the heating of the whole company and on the other hand, for the production of wood pellets. Unavoidable waste, such as packaging material, is recycled and this brought mafi a CO2-savers certificate in 2009. The durability of mafi natural wooden floors and the associated sustainability complete the ambitious project of mafi’s holistic natural, corporate philosophy. It is this unique corporate philosophy which was awarded the Energy Globe Award in 2011. Sustainable thinking and climate protection are not always the easiest, but surely always the right way!
