DNP in Full Scale Launch of New Decorative Panel

Sophisticatedly textured surface with a handcrafted effect enriches interior design choices

 

Dai Nippon Printing Co., Ltd. (DNP) will, in March, embark upon the full scale launch of a new series of decorative panels with a textured surface that produces a handcrafted tactile sensation.

[Background]

In recent years, there have been increased needs for greater design features by using textured decorative paneling such as wood grains not only for the interior doors or those of closets, but also on the surface of walls in houses, commercial facilities, etc. In such cases, there has been a demand for products with delicately textured surfaces where the feel of the material is designed so as to match the visible pattern, thereby boosting the texture and high class tactile sensation of the paneling as decorative materials.
The newly developed product takes base materials, such as wooden substrates, to which DNP developed interior decorative film is laminated, to produce a panel with a textured surface with a handcrafted sensation. DNP developed interior decorative film that maintains superior surface performance, including high level durability, along with design features, and have developed a firm track record of adoptions by companies, along with a reputation for high reliability. In this latest development, DNP has commercialized a panel with a rich design and texture, based on a textured surface. Four new products; Trapunto, Grata, Ritmo and Duna, based on motifs, such as cloth and sand designs, have been added to the current five wood grain products, allowing DNP to expand its lineup of decorative paneling to nine versions in total. 

[Product Lineup]

The newly added products achieve a textured surface via a press format, and in combination with DNP’s wide variety of sophisticated designs, successfully express the  texture of solid wood along with the stately impression.
