Istanti is a new collection of melamine-faced chipboard panels (RPB, Regenerated Particle Board) presented by the Piacenza-based company Saib to interpret trends in contemporary design by offering designers decorative finishes with a totally sustainable soul.
A carefully designed color palette and an innovative material rendering transform the chipboard panels produced with a virtuous industrial process. It starts by recovering wood at the end of its life cycle to regenerate it and turn it into a new value-added product. The highly sensuous surface processing appeals to touch and sight by evoking the most precious species of wood, the textures of refined fabrics, marble and natural stone as well as the appearance of aged metal.
The panels are the outcome of the pioneering Rewood production principle introduced by the company in 1994, a virtuous process of 100% recovery and reuse of wood at the end of its life. They offer a new frontier to furniture manufacturers and interior designers who wish to give high functional, technical and aesthetic quality a greater value by protecting the environment and following the principles of the circular economy.
