Once again, with the new floor boards Vulcano Rosso riva mezzo, the upper Austrian company mafi has succeeded in interpreting a modern design with a natural effect with not only helping to preserve the environment but also creating a pleasurable to walk on floor.

Vulcano Rosso has been designed to provide durable home grown wood flooring for example beech, which requires no additional chemicals or impregnation.
mafi has developed a special thermal process, which significantly improves the resistance of the wood. The beech is exposed to high temperatures over a given period of time, which causes the components to react and depending on the type of wood, creates a natural ageing or a warm dark accent. The delicate red or brown planks come in both white and natural oil, as well as being up to 5 meters long and 30 centimetres wide, Vulcano-Rosso planks are considerably less expensive than the comparable version in oak.

With the new style surface of riva mezzo, mafi has managed to create an innovation with a scraped look. Cracks and knots are visually accented with black putty, which bestows the floor with a stylish modern touch. Remarkable is the fact that as opposed to conventional scraped floors there are no stray splinters with which to rip socks. So the lady of the house can comfortably wear nylon stockings knowing that she doesn’t have to worry about those annoying ladders.

mafi has been well- known for many years for its natural wood floors, which in turn have created a worldwide furore. With their unique design and innovative processing methods, with its "walk on art" as the tiger oak or Volcano Fresco Duna, which the jury awarded mafi with the Red Dot Award 2009, the company has set trends, which have advanced the benchmark in the industry.
