Designed by Marc Sadler, Fabrique Natural Genius for Listone Giordano is a collection with a striking new personality and innovative surface treatments, in terms of both color and cross-brushing technique. Fabrique is a dynamic collection, stemming from in-depth research into the material, itself the inspiration for a new interpretation of wooden surfaces and also characterized by an inherent affinity for walls. It is made from multilayer birch wood, one of the fastest growing deciduous trees. Its use also in the visible layer as an alternative to the slow-growing species of timber commonly used for producing parquet is a more rational use of forestry resources. Fabrique reinterprets “head wood” flooring in a contemporary version by exploiting the performance of multilayer wood, which guarantees high dimensional stability despite changes in temperature. In addition to giving greater strength, the machining on the visible face of the product, in the longitudinal and transverse directions, achieves a seamless wood surface with a monolithic, homogeneous, material aesthetic effect and tactile qualities very close to the textures of textiles. The subsequent possible pigmentation, in the new colors such as Clay, Cement, Rope, Fume Noire, Graphite and Tobacco, also offers potential for attaining original aesthetic results, such as a material surface that recalls the texture of jute fabrics, highly unusual in a traditional wooden floor.
