For quite some time, Bencore has been working with Marco Piva in the development of original solutions and systems based on its honeycomb structure panels, leveraging on the studio's attention to what's up and coming both in architecture as for interior design and product design. The materials Bencore produces have an innovative character: different thicknesses, transparencies, opacities, the unmistakable textures. This, together with the peculiar processes that the company applies using cutting-edge technologies, have fascinated the Milanese architect, pushing him to define a collection that makes the most of the characterizing elements of the composite panels in thermo-resins with a honeycomb structure, working with the combination of subtlety, rigidity, transparency and design.
X-Files, designed by Marco Piva, is a series of modular doors and walls that express lightness, mechanical resistance, remarkable performance of acoustic insulation while emphasizing the ability to play with light. In fact, the relationship that Bencore honeycombs establishes with light sources is completely unusual: the unmistakable transparency of the 'souls' creates surprising effects and games and gives these elements a very special high-tech character. Available in different heights and widths, the X-Files doors can be inserted both in traditional masonry or on plasterboard or can be integrated flush with the wall in the modular wall system of the same collection, creating unique graphic effects and chromatic effects.
All the panels, once they reach the end of their life cycle, are 100% recyclable and this sustainability, typical of all Bencore materials, is a very significant aspect which is also evident in the use of the highest quality recycled raw materials for guarantee a very long average life of the product and thus reduce the environmental impact.
