Mafi USA a été en pleine ébullition pour sa première à Dwell on Design à Los Angeles et a fait grande impression lors de cette prestigieuse manifestation du design de la Côte Ouest. Notons quelques remarquables visiteurs à cette exposition mafi : Barbara Lazaroff, architecte d’interieur et son travail pour les restaurants Wolfang Puck; Janel Tamares de NBC’s LXTV; le consultant artistique Merry Norris; et Louis Stern de Louis Stern Fine Arts.
“Bien que nos parquets naturels design soient déjà présents dans de nombreux intérieurs de la Côte Ouest, l’estime qui a été gagnée lors de cet événement entraînera une vague sensible de demandes . Architectes et designers attendent impatiemment des échantillons et catalogues pour leurs nouveaux projets et nous sommes affairés à répondre à toutes ces demandes“, expliqua fièrement notre Directeur des Ventes de la Côte Ouest, Nic Neumann.

A lot of designers, architects and customers used mafi floors for kitchens already. Not only because it looks nice but also because of the reason that the kitchen is the room where you mostly will stand and not sit. And everywhere where you have to stand and walk you should have a warm surface to feel well. For an overview please see the pictures of mafi floors in Kitchens.

mafi on the Casaklima in Bolzano/Italy

Posted: February 9th, 2010 | Author: koan | Filed under: exhibitions | Tags: , , , , , , | No Comments »

mafi was on the Casaklima fair in Italy from January 21st – 24th 2010.

Wood can only fully develop its positive features for man and his living space when it is used in the most natural way possible. This is the principle on which mafi produces natural wood floors with their special, ecological surface finish that distiguishes them from all others. mafi uses no UV-hardened, film cover or synthetic material whatsoever for surface treatment. The surface is treated solely with oil, consists of absolutely pure, renewale raq materials and is bio-degradable.

At the exhibition we showed our partners and clients some of our very special products like Tiger Oak , Magic Oak violet, Domino Larch and our Beech Vulcano Fresco duna. Architects, designer and private customers also can see this products and a lot of other mafi samples in our mafi Flagshipstore in Bolzano/Italy.

Many architects were surprised about the uniqueness and creativity of mafi as well as the incredible quality and possibilities of use.

Luigi Ferrario

production mafi and COSTI DESIGN

Luigi Ferrario graduated in architecture from the Polytechnic School of Turin and achieved a master in architectural and environmental restoration at Rome University. At 25 he was director of the architecture department of the Centre d’Experimentation Artistique Marie Louise Jeanneret in Boissano and at 26 he opened his Laboratorio Architettura Contemporanea (Laboratory of Contemporary Architecture) in Rome: a professional studio and a gallery for modern and contemporary architecture exhibitions. In 1989 he moved his studio to Milan. He designed and built many works of architecture as well as monumental and urban restoration, interior architecture and design projects, that have been published in Italian and international books and magazines in Germany, England, Japan, Taiwan, Turkey and Spain. Some of these are still underway: a multi-storey building in Milan and one in Beirut, a small tower in New York, a few riads in Marrakech and an experimental house in aluminium. A few of his works and projects are exhibited in the Biennale in Venice, at the Festival of Architecture in Parma and, in 2003, in the Medaglia d’Oro all’Architettura Italiana exhibition at the Triennale of Milan, where he was awarded with a honour mention. The restoration project for Legnano Castle was chosen among the Italian works featured at the 2009 European Union Prize for Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award.
