Walk on art

Sustainability and resource efficiency are part of the mafi philosophy and permeatethrough all company areas. So, mafi obtains its wood almost exclusively from CentralEurope and only from carefully managed forests if possible. Herein, mafi uses the entiretree. Every tree, however, is unique, and any plank thereof is one of a kind. No floor is therefore like any other, nothing is produced on stock. The customer receives his ownwork of art made specifically for him - mafi: walk on art. Varying widths and lengths oreven single product lines reflect this basic philosophy.
