increasingly popular in modern design
Panel stands for timeless elegance and can be found in countless palaces and other magnificent buildings around Europe. But this classic is not just at home in the past: panel is becoming increasingly popular in modern design, too. As an exception, the perspective was not focused so much on the future as we developed this product.
As we created this design, we went with the tried-and-tested in order to give individual room designs a look that could be either modern or traditional. Every wood floor and every panel from mafi is one-of-a-kind. The geometric patterns created from the different-sized wood pieces with different color nuances really turn the floor into a special style statement.
The four different profiles in which the panel is available can be used to create incomparable designs for any room. So we hope you’ll be inspired by the elegance of mafi’s parquet.
what exactly is panel?
In Europe, parquet is considered one of the finest and most exclusive wooden floors and mafi’s natural wood panels are handcrafted. Patterns dating back centuries combined with modern concepts can lend any room a special elegance. Inspired by classic panels from old palaces and manor houses in France, parquet has its place in extraordinary, modern architectural projects. Geometric panels made of lozenges (rhombuses) form square panels which are glued together.
The special appearance is created by the geometric arrangement of the wood. In addition, different color combinations are often used. The result is a classic, yet unique look which gives every room a special charm and sheds a spotlight on the craftsmanship that goes into the flooring.
The distinguishing feature of this profile is the arrangement of the pieces at a 45° angle in the central part of the panel, then artfully framed with a border. This panel can be combined perfectly with both modern and classic interiors, as it is seen as a timeless stylistic device with a geometric pattern that exudes a magnificent charm.
If straight shapes and lines are preferred, Profile B is the way to go. In this case, the border cleverly frames the middle part of the plate. The arrangement of the pieces is straight, with them at 180° angles to each other. This panel adapts perfectly to any space and exudes a subtle elegance.
A special eye catcher among mafi’s panels. The framing continues on the basis of ever smaller lengths of wood, which are broken through in the middle by a cross. This variant works particularly well in large rooms, where the cross gives depth to the panels.
This profile convinces with an extravagant appearance. It is a lively and dynamic parquet pattern, ideally combined with a classic interior. The arrangement of the wood is crossed, with five narrower strips of wood crossing each other and also framed by a border. This parquet is the original Versailles panel and has probably the longest history behind it.
