SCALES is a true work of wall art, which presents a powerful design, with its "scales" naturally hanging in an extraordinarily beautiful irregular flow. It's asymmetrical and apparently careless shape of the shingles, enhances the beauty of the imperfection of the authentic cork, and enhances its natural acoustic benefits. The authenticity of the natural, an unostentatious luxury.
Each Scales, in fact like all Magna Natura pieces, is unique and unrepeatable, the result of a random construction process taking advantage of the natural irregularities of cork. The cork used is a natural raw material, in its purest state, presenting extraordinary versatility and incredible chromatic and textural diversity. What appears to be imperfection, or unfinished, is actually a reflection of its purity and authenticity, the result of Mother Nature's own design, which we keep intact, perfectly imperfect.
In addition to the decorative aspect, the Magna Natura design provides acoustic benefits, absorbing part of the sound waves, such as a 'sound trap', making the space acoustically comfortable and in a welcoming environment, which only authentic cork can provide.
ABOUT THE DESIGN
It is presented in three versions: 1) one showing the inner face of the cork, being lighter (Scales golden); 2) another with the side that is called 'belly' (scales Brown) which is the one that was in direct contact with the tree trunk; 3) and another that is a random mixture of the two faces (scales random), giving a particularly natural and beautiful chromatic aspect.
Scales is a 100% sustainable work, not only because it is pure cork that is extracted without harming the tree, which remains alive for generations, but also in this case by using cork strips from the production of stoppers, and carefully selected, revaluing what was not this beautiful solution with special acoustic benefits, it would be to crush and produce industrialized products.
Each piece of wallart in pure cork, its most natural state, is carefully made by hand, as it is impossible to be industrialized, but it is not about craftsmanship, but about careful design. It is easy to understand that our proposals are at a level well above the solutions of particulate cork, which, although still natural, is uniform and monotonous. It is not a simple wall covering, but a work that transforms an apathetic surface into an extraordinary wall accent with unique acoustic benefits that only authentic cork can offer.
Each work is made to order, allowing customization within certain limits, according to the client's needs. We present our proposals in the beautiful natural colors of cork. The work is divided into modules / plates with standard measures 40 x 60 cm, or another measure that is deemed to be more suitable for transport. It is easy to apply and when installed its design conceals the joints allowing a uniform appearance without the mosaic effect.
Customer's projects are welcome and we can prepare the modules for a quick application, in quantity and finishing according to your project.
We know that our products have a value well above their price, and so we trust that being able to physically feel our product you will understand why our solution is ideal, if your goal is not just to temporarily cover a wall in any way or at the lowest cost.
