WOOD-SKIN’s Mesh Sheets system lends a touch of  both elegance and dynamism to the walls of the reception and lounge areas of the Virgin Active headquarters in Corso Vercelli, a stone’s throw from the center of Milan. The broken lines of the Digital A pattern create a delicate sculptural effect.

The dialogue between the variable patterns, geometries and shapes combined with the Alpi Wood  finish of the American walnut veneer results in a surface that not only distinguishes the entire space but harmonizes seamlessly with it.

WOOD-SKIN is a semi-rigid membrane that makes complex forms and movements possible. A composite of wood and fabric only a few millimeters thick, the modularization of the surface into flexible ‘tiles’ proved to be the ideal solution for creating the desired volumes.
