ITALIAN-DESIGNED SURFACE LINE NOW AVAILABLE THROUGH INDUSTRY LEADER FORMICA CORPORATION

Arpa Industriale’s FENIX® features innovative materials for interior design

CINCINNATI (May 5, 2020) — Formica Corporation is expanding its legacy of innovative and durable surfacing with a smart line of Italian-designed surfaces. The company just announced it will market, manufacture and sell Arpa Industriale’s FENIX® innovative materials for interior design to customers and designers in North America. The award-winning FENIX feature elegant colors and high-tech design, and the integration with Formica Corporation brings a new array of options for durable, sustainable commercial and residential interiors to the North American design market.

“Since its launch, FENIX materials are recognized for adding value to the interior design world. The partnership with Formica Corporation will allow our successful FENIX brand to further reach architects and designers in North America through their well-established distribution network,” said Stefano Mion, CEO of Arpa Industriale.

FENIX are the innovative materials created for interior design by Arpa Industriale in 2013. They arise from the Italian design tradition, reflected in the project stylistic choices: from the color selection to the overall aesthetic result of the interior applications.

FENIX will be available to purchase in a variety of timeless colors of the FENIX NTM® collection through Formica Corporation starting this month. From Verde Commodoro to Bianco Alaska, the gorgeous, high-performance range brings technical and aesthetically pleasing design options to a range of interior spaces.  

Timeless, smart, durable

With low light reflectivity, FENIX® surfaces are extremely opaque, soft touch and anti-fingerprint. Thermal healing of superficial micro-scratches is also possible.

FENIX features are the result of a series of processes, including a multilayer coating and the use of next-generation acrylic resins that are hardened and fixed through an Electronic Beam Curing process.

The FENIX NTM color palette is inspired by nature and it interprets and anticipates trends and tastes in interior design to offer architects and designers a wider range of opportunities for expression.

FENIX can be used for vertical or horizontal applications. It is ideal for retail, health care, hospitality, office and transportation applications, as well as industrial, kitchen and bath, or furniture designs.

In June 2019, Formica Corporation was acquired by Broadview Holding B.V., a Netherlands-based holding company with a leading position in the global market of surface materials, joining Arpa Industriale as a sister company.
