WALLPEPPER®: la nuova carta da parati ecologica per progettare non solo con gli occhi

WallPepper®: la nuova carta da parati ecologica per progettare non solo con gli occhi…

Siamo a Milano, del nuovo e dinamico distretto dell’arte della città, alle porte del Naviglio Grande. A portarci qui, il desiderio di approfondire un trend che sta condizionando il mondo dell’interior design, ma anche di comprendere le strategie di una giovane realtà Made in Italy che, in poco tempo, ha riscontrato un grande successo a livello internazionale. Parliamo di carta da parati e lo facciamo con WallPepper®, azienda che, forte di una nutrita esperienza nel mondo della fotografia e della stampa, ha deciso di rivoluzionare la realtà delle decorazioni d’interni introducendo materiali innovativi, ecosostenibili e tecnicamente avanzati, per realizzare superfici dal forte impatto emozionale.

La carta da parati non è più quella di un tempo” ci racconta Diego Locatelli, fondatore e direttore di WallPepper® “Siamo ben lontani dai soggetti ripetitivi sulle pareti delle case degli anni passati; la carta da parati di oggi è un mezzo (l’unico, oserei dire) per portare grandi immagini, in altissima qualità e su misura, sulle superfici di qualunque ambiente. Il materiale che abbiamo scelto per portare la creatività su parete è uno speciale tessuto-non-tessuto, realizzato con fibre naturali di agave e cellulosa. Un materiale resistente e caldo al tatto, ma soprattutto ecologico, ipoallergenico, assolutamente sicuro e completamente esente da PVC. Siamo l’unica azienda del settore, al momento, a non utilizzare in alcun caso materiali plastici, che riteniamo obsoleti se paragonati alle nuove alternative. Per questo siamo già riusciti a collaborare, in diverse occasioni, anche con importanti strutture sanitarie”.

Una rivoluzione su parete che passa attraverso materiali sostenibili, attenti alle tematiche più sensibili e attuali, e che trova nella ricerca tecnica un fattore chiave di sviluppo. WallPepper® ha infatti presentato nuovi sistemi che consentono alla carta da parati di essere installata anche in ambienti umidi o a contatto diretto con acqua (WallPepper® H2O), e addirittura di avere caratteristiche fonoassorbenti.

“La nostra ultima innovazione è WallPepper® Acoustic, un particolare telo in fibra di vetro che consente sia di assorbire il riverbero in una stanza, sia di isolarla dagli ambienti esterni o confinanti. Questo consente di creare un ambiente confortevole a casa propria, ma anche e soprattutto di migliorare l’acustica nei luoghi pubblici più rumorosi, come i ristoranti o i bar, dove è importante progettare non solo per la vista, ma anche per l’udito”.

Rockfon® Mono® Acoustic

The magnificent Hotel VIU building is located between the historical “Chinatown” of Milan and the district of Porta Volta, an area which is under urban renovation and requalification since several years, projected towards the future.

The external building is characterized by glass, wood and metals: the glass façade is framed with luxurious and green plants, chosen to be in harmony with the green ambition of the neighbourhood.
The original Hotel VIU’s interior design has been signed by Arassociati Architects; the idea was to give a seamless interconnection between the building and the eco-friendly surroundings. All the floors are made with dark oak parquet, which is balanced by the natural light and soft colours of the curtains and internal textile decorations. The rooms and the common spaces have big floor-to-ceiling windows, which allow a high diffusion of natural light.

All the building’s furniture is connected to nature: floors are made of wood, the main colours are brown, light brown and beige and everything has been carefully taken care.
When the big main entrance glass door is open, you find yourself in front of a wide lobby where charming carpets and curtains, precious sofas, big libraries full of design and architecture books make you feel in a sophisticated and calm place.

The entire project was built to give a relaxing experience and everything has been thought in order to achieve this purpose: the architecture, the colours, the furniture, everything has been conceived to realize a comfortable environment; in this context, acoustics has a central role.
How can you have a relaxing space if you don’t care about acoustics? If you want to create a pleasant indoor climate, you have to avoid noises, loud voices, traffic sounds and echoes: acoustic control is the king of comfort.

Rockfon® Mono® Acoustic has been the choice they made to obtain the best acoustic comfort: the winning choice in this challenge where harmony, quality, beauty and simplicity must be joined to create such a special place. In the reception area, which is always crowded and noisy, all the ceiling is made of Rockfon Mono Acoustic in a light brown shade, which gives a touch of essentiality and simple beauty.

Hotel VIU Milan it is the only 5* hotel in Milan with an external swimming pool and a 360° view on the city skyline. The exceptional terrace offers a unique wonderful panoramic view such as its bar which is connected to outdoor. When you arrive at the 8o floor from the lift, you step into a magic place: a big charming bar with a black floor, small gold tables with light leather chairs and huge glass windows all over the room. From the rooftop bar you can access the terrace, where you can enjoy a unique panoramic view. Also here the hotel decided to use Rockfon Mono Acoustic panels. The render which was used use for the finishing produces an elegant and refined black surface that perfectly complements the interior.The atmosphere is fantastic; the acoustic comfort is at the maximum level.

If you choose Rockfon Mono Acoustic in its white version, you have an extremely bright surface , whose exceptional light diffusion will make you enjoy of the natural sunlight beauty. Even if you choose to personalize the ceiling with a coloured render to meet your design needs you will obtain an aesthetically pleasing seamless ceiling, offering excellent sound absorption properties (up to αw = 1.00, Class A). This ceiling perfectly integrates in any location, like a hidden “deus ex machina”: with its smooth monolithic surface, Rockfon Mono Acoustic absorbs sound and noises, and transforms your space in the best relaxing place ever, where you can have a business meeting or drink a cocktail.

Hotel VIU is a place that combines beauty, art, architecture, simplicity and comfort: proceed along the pedestrian Via Fioravanti, leave the rest behind and enter in this new dimension, listen the quiet through our Rockfon Mono Acoustic and enjoy your stay.

Forzanti

Forzanti is a young and dynamic design company and a leading architecture firm which has just started a revolution in the world of HoReCa and ice-cream counters, thanks to the visionary and unconventional ideas of the design of Alessandro Marchelli. The official press release was issued today.

The project is called ©Organic Collection and is created by Alessandro Marchelli for Forzanti, which  immediately embraced the idea. The collection develops two main concepts: “Liquid & Fluid”.
It includes two new lines of counters as well as other pieces of furniture and accessories for the HoReCa, food and ice-cream sectors. All these elements were thought, designed and realised to give new life to innovative, hi-tech and multifunctional spaces for the contemporary man.

The creative idea of Alessandro Marchelli suggests new “suspended and open” ways to think and leave the food&bevarage sector, from tastings to aperitifs, from breakfasts to brunches, from pastry to ice-cream, shaping emotional scenarios as if fluid and liquid waves and curves interlock and merge onto a straight line. These elements melt and fade away into smooth anthropomorphic combinations, blending in with shapes and materials, flavours and scents, thus creating a unique positive energy and sense of wonder.
In such venues, the guests will immediately feel to be part of the global harmony that surrounds the space. Every detail is extremely refined and each component is cleverly pondered in order to give the best experience both to the business traveler and the leisure guest.

“The curved line”, explains the designer Alessandro Marchelli “is something that forces you to question yourself, to challenge the cliché, to go much further the path you already know in order to reach your targets”.

That is to say the sense of wonder, the emotion, the surprise, the gravity, the elegance of purity.

“The cultural objective of this new collection”, says Alessandro Marchelli “is to merge in an interactive way contemporary art, architecture, technology and design, innovating the concept of new entertainment design and make it adjustable to the habits and needs of the daytime and the nighttime”.

“The ambition of this idea is to get over the material aspect of the project, to move the playground, to create an important effect, to move forward the static counter and involve the consumer in an emotional and sensorial journey, always moving, without clear reference points and with different perspectives”.

“The new Organic Collection that I have designed for Forzanti”, says Alessandro Marchelli “is a complex, powerful series, yet extremely delicate and sweet, which stretches smoothly with its sinuous lines, engaging the gaze while the hidden light glides on the curved lines making them ethereal”.

Alessandro Marchelli’s project, developed and supported by the engineering and industrialization of Forzanti, wants to find a balance between the intuition and the strategy, starting from the idea that innovation, experimentation, collaboration, material research and attention to details have to coexist and merge in order to create a unique space where to go, sit down and “tell the stories of your life,” as Ettore Sottsass used to say.

Oltremondano

Oltremondano is a company that designs and produces lamps in which coexist aesthetics, technology and craftsmanship.

Oltremondano is an atelier where passion and experimentation form a brand identity with a high style.

A company that reinterprets old manual works in a technological way, creating new shapes of charm and design.

A production entirely made in Italy, focused on the centrality and quality of the product: research and experimentation on materials, aesthetics of products, attention to the quality of the light and attention to energy saving are all elements that make recognizable the Oltremondano style and unique its products. Great attention is paid to the customer, who is accompanied during all the phases, from project design, to realization, to final delivery.
