It is the Arclinea vocation to combine technological research with the use of materials that have always been the main players of its products: wood, laminate and stainless steel in the leading role. The finishes of the NTF new-gen woods have a special textured appearance that emphasises the natural characteristics of the material. The same can be said for Armour, an innovative, soft almost velvety feel laminate that is post formed and applied to the exclusive Italia handle. Innovations are often the result of concrete client needs or problems encountered. Like recent research into a material with the same characteristics as steel, which have led to application of PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition). This procedure permits deposition of titanium, causing it to alloy at a molecular level with the stainless steel, colouring it and making it less vulnerable to corrosion.
