Resumen:
Una pequeña empresa italiana del sector de fabricación y diseño de muebles ha desarrollado un panel hecho de capas de resina epoxi y restos de alimentos inertes para fabricar muebles. Estos paneles pueden protegerse con una película hidrofóbica y antibacteriana, lo cual hace que los muebles sean especialmente idóneos para niños. Los paneles pueden tener unas dimensiones y espesor variables y están hechos de resina epoxi transparente con excelente fuerza adhesiva y alta resistencia mecánica. La empresa busca estudios de diseño y fabricantes de muebles con el fin de establecer acuerdos de fabricación y comercialización con asistencia técnica.

Tittle:
Innovative panels for furniture with transparent epoxy resin and food scraps
Summary:
A small Italian company, in the field of furniture and furnishing design, has designed a panel obtained from layers of epoxy resin and inert food waste for the manufacture of furniture.Panels can be protected by a hydrophobic and antibacterial film which makes them particularly suitable for the world of childhood.Design studios and furniture manufacturers are sought for manufacturing and commercial agreement with technical assistance.
Description:
A small Italian company founded by an architect and designer designs and produces furniture and furnishing that have received awards and recognition both nationally and internationally. The design and production has always focused on luxury artistic objects made of materials like wood and carbon fiber for the contract market and the living environment. In the last four years the company has paid special attention to the development of products that could combine the appearance (design products) with the use of innovative materials, creating a project for the manufacture of panels for interior furnishing and furniture. The panels may have variable dimensions and thickness and are made using a particular transparent epoxy resin with excellent adhesive strength and a high mechanical strength. Scraps (mostly inert) of food, such as the shells of nuts and dried fruit, can be inserted between layers of resin and be transformed into a decorative element forming a texture, a drawing or a decoration. The panels, once the resin is dry are protected with an anti-bacterial and hydrophobic coating. In this way it produces an antibacterial and self-cleaning protective transparent film that makes the panels particularly suitable for the manufacture of furniture for the childhood or for nursery school furniture. The panels treated as described can be cut, milled, shaped and machined like wood. The production of the panels does not require special machinery and infrastructure.
The company is interested in partnerships with:
design studios;
companies active in the production of elements of design, interested in creating a line of objects with the proposed panel for the interior design sector, for outdoor environments.
Both partners should contribute to the marketing of products
The proposing company would provide all technical support needed also in the design phase. In this case a manufacturing agreement and a commercial agreement with technical assistance will be proposed.
Advantages and Innovations:
Recycling of food wastes to be used for furniture and furnishings manufacturing
final product treatable like wood material thanks to layers of epoxy resin
coating hydrofobic and antibacterial film to protect panel surface.
