paolo.interiors launches Floorbamboo to the UK


paolo.interiors - the specialist architectural materials consultancy – introduce Floorbamboo® to the UK, as part of their on-going search for new and innovative materials. Celebrated for its enduring and sustainable properties, bamboo


flooring is an increasingly popular choice for sustainability-conscious projects and clients. Te ancient bamboo plant, often referred to as ‘nature’s steel’, is a


symbol of strength and durability. An eco-sustainable choice, the bamboo plant can grow up to one meter a day and entirely regenerates after 5 years – preventing soil erosion and absorbing CO2 four times faster than forests. In addition, it produces 35% more oxygen. ‘Floorbamboo’ is a result of research and technology to enhance and


celebrate the qualities of bamboo by developing aesthetic, sustainable, affordable and durable flooring and wall cladding solutions. Te bamboo canes are treated, prepared and carefully hand-finished


and transported to Italy for quality control and certification to meet European standards. Te bamboo canes are originally cultivated along river basins in the


hill regions, where the soil is most fertile. Each piece is carefully selected and imported once it reaches 5-6 years of age and is taken through a treatment of steaming and drying to improve stability. Finally, the flooring is treated, coloured and finish to offer a wide range of options to meet most design requirements. Tis process enforces the durability of ‘Floorbamboo’, creating a


finished flooring that is up to 3 times harder than any wood flooring and suitable for indoor/outdoor residential use, as well as commercial projects with high traffic. With the number of oak forests reducing, and the time required for their regeneration, bamboo is certainly the material of choice for the future. www.floorbamboo.it
