UPB Boarda Made of Resysta offer the same tactile and aesthetic sensations as real wood, but are 100% recyclable.
Biodegradable chairs composed of fibreglass and PLA, panels that look like marble but are made from plastic waste, buildings isolated with Posedonia Oceanica, ceramics produced from toxic waste from the processing of bauxite: there are countless researches in the field of architecture and design aimed at completely rethinking their materials processes in a perspective that respects the global ecosystem, reinterpreting the aesthetic qualities of the products to which we have become accustomed.
As the curator Paola Antonelli tells us with her XXII Triennale di Milano "nature is broken", it is no longer possible to postpone the environmental issue or leave it as an inheritance to future generations. We are all called to commit our energies and skills in the direction of more conscious and respectful choices for the ecosystem of which we are part.
Sustainability is the main characteristic of UPB Boards Made of Resysta, distributed in Italy by Gruppo Bonomi Pattini, a company specialising in the distribution of innovative and sustainable materials for architecture and furniture.
UPB Boards Made of Resysta are 100% recyclable and 60% made from rice husks. Despite their innovative composition, the panels retain the tactile and aesthetic sensations of real wood and can easily be processed with traditional machines.
The mechanical and physical performance of the material is also excellent: it is resistant to water and ultraviolet rays, making it more durable than real wood and easy to wash. Thanks to their thermoplastic properties, the panels can also be thermoformed, guaranteeing infinite application possibilities.
