Weissbach, Mai 16, 2017 – The motto #SEE #TOUCH #THINK #LOVE is like a common thread running through the trade fair year for the surface specialist Hornschuch. The four characteristics perfectly express the message that the company wants to convey. Hornschuch invites the interested expert audience to meet its representatives at booth E 40 in hall 6 at Interzum. Here, visitors can experience new high-quality artificial leathers and furniture films live as well as create individual solutions and holistic concepts for customer projects. The goal of all of it is to let the customers know that the look and feel of Hornschuch‘s materials, their inner values and external attractiveness make them something special: surfaces that touch.

Hornschuch will also present its Concept Car THE PIONEER at the Piazza Textile & Machinery with the motto “Mobile Spaces”. With it, Hornschuch shows its complete spectrum of design competence in interiors and exteriors.

Versatile furniture film

 

The high-quality skai® furniture film has proven itself in the furniture industry as a 2-D and 3-D film on kitchen and bathroom furniture fronts. It is also being increasingly used on cabinet furniture in the living-room. Due to its 3-D formability, free-form areas can also be implemented as attractive eyecatchers. With regard to the design of skai® furniture film, almost anything is possible, there are almost no limits. Whether classic or modern wood, expressive oak or stone-concrete look. Naturally with the appropriate embossing so that the feel conforms the visual impression. This is also the case for the following new products:

 

Individual

 

Angular. Experimental. Individual. Idiosyncrasies, cracks, and washed-out areas on the stained bog oak are signs of natural use on skai® Intra. The contrast between light and dark wood areas is one example in the story of skai® Intra. The design can be easily combined with other materials and colors.

 

Robust, clear, combinable

 

skai® Oak Ribbeck is an imposing oak creation with end grain sections in a typical furniture design. The mixture of natural wood characteristics creates this innovative oak character. skai® Oak Ribbeck can be used in a versatile manner – it can be paired with classic stones, cement fillers, or elegant plains.

 

Exciting contrast

 

The furniture design skai® Kitamy has a natural tension due to the busy material with slight discolorations and delicate fiber structures. The design’s exciting contrasts between stripy and flowery areas are especially impressive. Commercial, long-lasting, and definitely not boring - these are the characteristics of this furniture design.

 

Man meets material

 

skai® Oxid – a strong representative of materiality with a stone-concrete-quartz look or with a metal look. Smart home and digitalization on one hand, materiality on the other. Where many things are no longer “tangible”, the feel of the material becomes important. The trends stone and metal form an uncontradicted symbiotic relationship. Materials can be mixed as desired, oftentimes with wood designs as a cozy counterpart.

 

Gentleman

 

With its sophisticated and elegant coated surface, whose purity and clarity set standards, skai® Perfect Touch is the gold standard in the area of matt plains. It has a very pleasant feel: not dull, but warm, it presents a direct tactile experience when approached. The surface invites you to touch it. It begs to be experienced with the senses. Soft and delicate, Perfect Touch reinforces the visual impression of great value. The film is exquisitely formable and its use in combination is a MUST.

 

Pure luxury

 

With skai® PureLux 2D soft, Hornschuch offers a surface for the most demanding requirements for design and use. The brand-new coated laminate is impressive with added value due to its excellent coated surface. It offers a high-quality look and feel for decorating furniture surfaces and elements and sets standards with regard to function and usability by its innovative surface finish. The current collection includes six trendy, fine matt, high-end, coordinated colors.
