Novowood is a composite material (WPC), 70% made of wood natural fibers and 30% made of Polyethylene. It can be used for products of different shapes and colors, still maintaining the elegance of wood and the advantages of a not completely natural material.
Hotel degli Artisti - Rome
Thanks to its natural appeal and its technical characteristics, Novowood has been chosen as a floor for the renovation of the elegant "Hotel degli Artisti" in Rome. The operation was performed on the upstaris terrace of the top floor with 360° view over the eternal city. The space is divided into a sitting area overlooking the garden of San Isidoro's church and a wellness and relax area with hydromassage pool coated by the same wood plastic composite in wood color.
