Steel Effect

The Steel Effect range offers two interpretations of natural steel: “foil” with lighter, brighter tones, and “oxidized” with warmer tones and a more “lived-in” appearance, available in eight different nuances selected on the basis of an analysis of current trends in the world of design.

The effect is produced through a coating cycle (on MDF panels or melamine paper) that combines the lacquered gloss coating with the steel-effect metallic coating. The light scratches on the surface provide the minute detail that makes the surface an even more faithful reproduction of steel and, accentuated by the reflection of the light, generates undertones and a sense of movement.
