FENIX NTM, the innovative nano-technological material for interior design launched in 2013, it enriches the “Solid“ typology with a range of three new thicknesses (4mm, 6mm, 8mm) which complete the existing 10mm and 12mm, all available with “ cuore a tutto colore “ in 13 colors.
FENIX NTM Link is a new typology of the smart material of Harp, namely a compound formed by a support (ABS or medium density foam) and FENIX NTM. It is also an ideal solution for vertical applications for interiors (dividing walls, coverings) and specific for applications in which a light material has been required, but waterproof. The versatility of FENIX NTM Link (available in thicknesses 4.8mm, 8mm, 12mm) is also given by the possibility of edging which allows to realize projects with unpublished aesthetical characteristics.
The aim of the company is to anticipate and to plan aesthetical solutions and innovative techniques, thanks to a constant investment in research and development, that represents the 4% of the turnover.
