M TECHNOLOGY AWARD 2009

M TECHNOLOGY AWARD 2009

Nano Stone is a natural stone surface made from slate stone, with a reinforced back and a thickness of only 0.3 mm.
It may be formed three-dimensionally (thermo-forming or folding) and is thus very attractive for being used for furniture surfaces and interior design.
If microperforated this stone surface may even be used for acoustic wall panels
NanoStone is also availabe with a back made from recycled leather fibres (total thickness 0.9 mm) and can thus be processed like natural leather.
