Materials at EuroShop 2020
Materials speak their own language – rough or smooth, natural or artificial, fragile or robust – they give rooms a special atmosphere and affect the mood of the people who enter the room. The source of inspiration is often the multi-faceted nature. But acoustics are also decisive for the effect of a room – materials can have a sound-absorbing effect and thus create harmony. We will see some of the many material possibilities at EuroShop 2020.
A reflection of nature – REALwood wood-based materials
Whether flooring or interior design – the Salzburg-based company M-Kaindl OG knows what matters. The unique furniture and shop fittings are a reflection of nature – authentic and yet complete in their imperfection. Furniture and shop fittings have natural wood structures. Retailers who value sustainability are well served by REALwood from M. Kaindl OG.

Cork look for the floor – DryTile
A floor tile coated with cork can not only be laid 8 times faster than conventional floor coverings, but is also immediately walkable and sound-insulating. It is: DryTile from Agrob Buchtal GmbH. Completely decomposable without any residues, it saves a lot of time during rebuilding and new construction. A tile that is ideally suited for shop fitting, gastronomy, hotel business and shopping centres.

Paper in a new dimension – room dividers
On a trade fair stand, for the office or the conference room – the paper architecture of Matrix Systems GmbH scores with lightness and elegance. The room divider is easy to assemble, self-standing and one to two metres high. In large and small rooms it offers ideal light diffusion due to its composition.

Fragile yet robust – Glass Vibe
Unprecedented depth, transparent and yet matt, fragile and yet robust – these are the contradictory properties that characterise glass. The Italian company Ceramiche Refin has developed the Ceramica Vetri series, which will be presented at EuroShop 2020. The glossy surface of the tiles reflects light and lets rooms shine in their brightness. Each individual tile is made of porcelain stoneware combined with the emotional power of glass. They lend a special charm to kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms; they also offer business premises a “clear view”.

When materials set the tone – versatile acoustic materials
Whether while shopping or having a cosy dinner – customers are often negatively surprised by the reverberation in the room. The reason: the walls are made of glass, concrete or steel. Delius GmbH & Co.KG presents solutions for this at the EuroShop 2020. Curtains, drapes, room dividers or wall coverings made of textiles absorb the sound. Thus they give customers and employees exactly what they need – a quiet atmosphere for conversations and more enjoyment for leisure.

Poetry for the senses – Chameleon Beads
Walls that fascinate – Ulrich Welter is guided by his feeling for surfaces. His inspiration for Chameleon Beads were literally chameleons, which can change colour within minutes depending on their mood. This colour spectacle is also reflected in the wall cladding Chameleon Beads. Depending on the viewpoint of the viewer, the wall cladding changes its color. It is made of a glass ball and an aluminium support.
