Hello Topo!

Texture reigns supreme.  Meet the new Topo tiles from Kirei.  In two new elevated patterns, EchoPanel continues to expand its acoustic options.  Great for after-the-fact sound control, or integrated acoustic design, Topo tiles use both soft surfaces and different thicknesses within a single tile to address sound control issues.  Joining Wave, Dune and Vee tiles, Topo is available in 2 finishes: Pixel and Barcode and in 20 standard colors.

For samples, email echopanel@caragreen.com.

What is SuperKü​l?

reSAWN Timber continues to add to its charred Shou Sugi Ban collection with the Kebony series. SuperKül is one of the options that uses the patented Kebony technique of modifying the wood cell walls to make the material harder and suitable for outdoor use. The process uses an environmentally friendly, bio-based liquid to make softwoods such as pine much harder, and more dimensionally stable, while sporting the beautiful aesthetic of charred Shou Sugi Ban.

For samples of SuperKul and other reSAWN charred options, email resawn@caragreen.com.

Countertop Trends You Need to Know About

Quartz is Queen...for the moment.  The days of granite are waning in progressive markets as most stone fabricators are seeing clients replacing granite with quartz or alternative materials.  The time for new, better looking or better performing materials has arrived.  The onslaught of Chinese pre-fab granite and quartz has really flooded the market, and savvy designers are looking for differentiators.  Sintered stones like Lapitec, are taking center stage as the high end “must have” products.  In parallel, modern surfaces, like IceStone, Durat modern solid surface, and PaperStone are offering unique aesthetics that perform as well as their peers.

A Look Into Biophilic Design

Bio-what?  This new trend is catching on fast.  The union of great design and healthy spaces is finally taking shape with these new principles of design focused on making sure your tenants, employees and residents are getting the most of the materials and environment surrounding them.  Data finally backs up what we already knew about the built environment – your surroundings dictate your mood, attitude and productivity. More light, better light, more color, brighter color, more greenery and outside views make you feel better and perform better.  We were treated to a tour of the ASID (American Society of Interior Designers) building in DC, which really drove home the experience, with integral herb gardens, perspective, privacy and cloud shaped light fixtures rounding out the experience of designing for your team instead of designing for the building.
