Directa Plus has announced that its new G+ graphene coatings are being used in two collections at the Milan Design Week. During the event, designers, architects, creatives, producers and brands in furniture and upholstery and interior design show their new products and creations.
The graphene product is being displayed by two Italian companies: Plinio il Giovane, a central Milan based producer of high-end furniture and upholstery, and Danese Milano, a subsidiary of lighting company Artemide. The G+ coating has been used for Plinio il Giovane’s chairs and sofas and Danese Milano’s desk pad.
Directa Plus said the coating is antibacterial and antiviral against Sars-Cov-2, resistant to abrasion and wear and tear, resistant to UV light and thermally conductive for thermal comfort.
"Upholstery and coverings represent important new markets for Directa Plus and we are very proud that our technology has been selected for inclusion by two important influencers attending Milan Design Week, said founder and chief executive Giulio Cesareo.
