The enthusiasm of architects, interior designers, shop fitters and sophisticated home builders shows that concrete is no longer limited to playing just a supporting role in the building industry, but has established itself as a regular feature of exclusive interior wall design. The reproduction concrete surfaces of the high quality “AP Concrete” collection by the premium and contract brand Architects Paper are produced to an exacting standard of precision. True to the motto “its all down to what you make of it”, they crystallise the subtle refinement of the substance perfectly. The visionary “AP Concrete” collection features an assortment of classic wallpapers of varying quality types and large-scale digital imitation prints without pattern repeat, including poured concrete, fair-faced concrete, washed concrete, weathered and vintage style concrete. “AP Concrete” makes a bold style statement for representative and decorative wall design with a high recognition value, no matter whether it is used in experimental industrial design, for a stylish loft or factory look, or as part of the visual image of fashionable lifestyle boutiques.
The second edition of our collection AP 2000, designed by Studio F. A. Porsche, will be introduced at the tradefair Heimtextil 2016 in Frankfurt, Germany. To reduce the waiting period we will present you a few impressions in advance.
Most of the reproduction product consists of natural stone, such as slate powder. It contains only a few synthetic components in order to make the material flexible. We are careful to use ecologically sound raw materials. Therefore, these products are PVC, softener and solvent free.
Stoneplex reproduction wallcovering is supplied on rolls. Delivery via parcel service ensures low storage and transport costs for Stoneplex products. Furthermore, there is no need for either extensive support constructions for the walls or consultation of a structural engineer due to increased surface load. The product is mounted like paste-the-wall paper with a proprietary adhesive that is applied with a toothed spatula. The wallcovering is cut with an ordinary utility knife.
The strips are equivalent to a 100 cm x 280 cm plate. This is just possible in nature but extremely rare and therefore very expensive.
A seamless application, as would be with an original, is not possible. We recommend application with a silicone joint or seam, or other separating design elements, such as an aluminium rail. Each product is unique because the reproduction strips are individually refined and aged by hand. There is no pattern repeat!
In addition, Stoneplex products possess sound-proofing and heat-insulating properties.
