Natural wine stains and natural pigments:
an exclusive process.
Natural Culture is Passoni Design’s philosophy for transforming wood into
completely sustainable items of furniture – and that includes the finishes.
This is why the company has partnered with PelleVino Treatment®
to develop an absolutely unique wood-staining method,
harnessing the inherent properties of wine and pomace.
Thanks to the acidity of these substances, when combined
with iron oxides and applied to wood, they trigger
a chemical reaction that causes the wood to change colour.
At the same time, their alcohol content makes it possible to use totally natural pigments,
creating a range of unique hues, equally well-suited to more traditional atmospheres
or to the latest styles in interior design. All this is achieved with a process
that is completely free of harmful emissions and absolutely pollution-free.
In addition to great aesthetics and sustainability,
quality and durability are also guaranteed.
The light-resistance of the colours is tested by Catas,
the institute of reference for wood and furniture, and the results show
that it achieves the maximum levels envisaged by standard UNI EN 15187:2007.
