"mafi produces completely ecological and healthy living natural wood floors and is the international pioneer in sustainable and pollutant free wood flooring."
mafi planks are created to a simple but clear philosophy. Working with wood means reducing the “bad”, while preserving the good. When applied to wooden floors, it's about keeping the regenerative abilities and health promoting aspects of the wood, whilst curbing wear & tear as well as the swelling and shrinkage behaviour of the wood. For this mafi chooses a combination of air-dried, oiled surfaces and a symmetrical three layer plank structure. In this way, the wooden planks remain natural and breathable, whilst still stable and robust. The awkward gap formation on underfloor heating is also greatly reduced by this symmetrical structure.
Real natural wood floors create something that is now lacking in many rooms but is barely palpable. The natural, warm underfoot material wood gives a room a soul and generates a feeling of contentment that reminds many people of childhood. However, wood doesn’t have to be old-fashioned. As a floor, wood fits pleasantly into a room and gives it a real base.
The mafi brand is a family business from Schneegattern, Upper Austria, which has processed wood as a material for over 100 years in Austria, and only in Austria. mafi began originally as a sawmill and developed from producing ornate ceilings to the innovative and sustainable parquet production seen today. Worldwide, the reference portfolio now ranges from Mexico, Qatar, Moscow via Monte Carlo, South Africa to New York and London. In total, people live on mafi natural wood floors in over 50 countries and in all climatic zones.
