The new lines of textured Carbon Fiber and smooth Metallic panels by Decorative Panels International (DPI) will be the hottest new products of Interzum 2005 in Cologne Germany.
Originally designed for hi-impact areas of style-conscious homes and office environments, the CarbonTechÂ and MetallicÂ lines feature DPIÂs Premium Tempered Hardboard base with scratch and moisture-resistant coating, and are available both in perforated and non-perforated panels. A lower cost alternative to traditional metallic panels, the CarbonTech line delivers the look and texture of a carbon fiber inlay, while the Metallic line features the popular look of brushed stainless steel, copper and bronze. Available in several stock colors as well as any custom PMS color, these panels are giving furniture and cabinet designerÂs unlimited options.
According to DPI President, Fred Thompson, this combination of style, durability and attractive cost compared to traditional carbon fiber and metal materials makes them a perfect fit for Interior Designers, Architects as well as Furniture and Cabinet designers.
ÂThese new products allow Designers and Architects to achieve high-end looks and performance, at a considerable cost reduction. DPI has positioned itself in the finished panel marketplace as the premier innovator of unique, cutting-edge designs. The stunning looks of the Metallic products and the depth of the carbon fiber texture on the CarbonTechÂ products are the most recent examples of DPIÂs in house design teamÂs innovation. Because of our fully integrated manufacturing capabilities, we are able to respond quickly to the latest wall covering and interior design trendsÂ Thompson said.
DPI will also showcase custom colors that include red, pink, yellow, green and blue panels to inspire those that are looking for panels to use in their projects that require a more specialized look. Thompson adds, ÂThese panels are displayed because we want the industry to know that we have in-place capability to go well beyond the standard product. We can work with them to design panels that match their project or corporate colors, and can even provide specialized value-added options like including an image of their logo printed onto the board to make a great brand statement in their retail merchandising.Â
