Andrea Federici for Scavolini
1) Why did you choose Cristalplant® for your products?
First of all, for the unique and unmistakable surface feel of Cristalplant® products. The unparalleled soft tactility of this material gives products a warm feel that suits any environment of the house, but especially the bathroom, the kitchen and the living spaces. From a technical standpoint, being able to create objects in a moulded solid surface material instead of from sheet represents the overcoming of a limit that had been preventing for years the development of many of the forms designers had in mind.
2) Which are the advantages of Cristalplant®?
Surely, the great versatility of a material that gives designers maximum freedom of formal expression, and the constant research carried out by the company that manufactures it to overcome any technical constraint and ensure Cristalplant® endless potential for customization and differentiation. The accuracy of the shapes that can be obtained, the evenness of surfaces and its easy restorability are unlikely to be found in most materials, while they are a constant in Cristaplant®.
3) How long have you been working with the group that manufactures Cristalplant® and holds its industrial patents? What can you say about the company?
The collaboration between Scavolini and the group that developed Cristalplant® and holds its industrial patents began when the Scavolini bathroom collection was first launched, therefore around 2011, the year during which the company defined the platform for the project. The company has always been a key partner in helping us solve the many technical issues related to the development of custom products. Together with our technical department, we have always identified spot on and very effective solutions. The fruitful relationship that has developed between our companies has consolidated to such an extent that, in 2014, we have decided to use Cristalplant even in the kitchen sector.
