In designing flooring, it’s known that natural elements can enhance satisfaction and productivity in the workplace, as well as relaxation at home and a host of other health benefits.
So what’s the design world doing about it? In the past few years the industry seems determined to make a change and reconnect with nature, teasing out the best of its characteristics to support human development and wellbeing. Mafi understand the importance of this movement, and have taken up the mantle with characteristic aplomb.
Stylish, sustainable, and versatile, Mafi’s broad catalogue of timber flooring products brings the best elements of nature into contemporary interior spaces ranging from commercial environments to homes and apartments.
By bringing the warmth, tactility, and unique look and feel of timber indoors, Mafi helps people reconnect with the world around them and avail of the benefits of immersion within natural materials and environments. The softness and familiarity of timber environments helps put occupants at ease, and can support them in achieving their fullest potential within a space.
As a consequence of this plethora of positive side effects, Mafi products have become a favourite choice for the wall and floor linings of some of today’s leading wellness spaces including healthcare facilities, childcare, and fitness and meditation spaces. Mafi products also take advantage of the physical health benefits offered by timber linings and surfaces, including healthier indoor air quality, a toxin-free environment, and the absence of irritants that may cause or exacerbate allergies and asthma.
