A revolution on walls: JV453 Igusa designed by Jannelli&Volpi Creative Lab represents for Jannelli&Volpi the covering of the future

JV453 Igusa is a new collection of wall coverings by Jannelli&Volpi, made only with natural rush woven on a loom according to traditional techniques, which thanks to very modern treatments is presented with highly innovative features. Designed by Jannelli&Volpi Creative Lab, it is a flexible and resistant covering with a strong aesthetic characterization, in fact - absolute innovation in the world of wall covering – it has the particularity of being double face. Designed to cover walls, floors or even to separate rooms (when placed in the center of the room, taking advantage of the peculiar double face aspect), this covering gives a warm and natural atmosphere to the spaces, spreading the scent of freshly cut grass. Finally, it has multiple technical properties that make it a cutting-edge product for well-being and safety. First of all the conformation of the Igusa plant, whose interior is composed of overlapping honeycomb structures, hundreds of small cells on a large surface of spongy nature, makes it capable of absorbing nitrogen dioxide and formaldehyde, favoring purification of the air. This same spongy structure allows not only to absorb excess moisture but also, if necessary, to release what it has stored, maintain a constant degree of humidity in the room. A specific treatment of the straw that composes the material makes it highly resistant to flame. Finally, the product has a great resistance to stains, is washable and is subjected to a particular dyeing process that guarantees it from mutations during washing with water. The collection comes in finished and edged drops, reversible, 3 m high and 87 or 95 cm wide.
