WHERE TO USE MB’s PRODUCTS?
Matteo Brioni is interior design. Earth is a material that for centuries has been in contact with man. Perfect for residential and commercial interiors, adapting to the surfaces like a second skin and improving the indoor microclimate substantially. Earth products are suitable for both new constructions and the restoration or renovation of existing environments, compatible with any type of pre-existing material.
WHY USE MB’s PRODUCTS?
The ancestral beauty and tactile pleasure of the earth is maintained in warm and contemporary colors.
Flexibility and Cost-Effectiveness
Matteo Brioni’s products can be applied to every surface, lasts forever, and does not require complex and costly disposal.
Matteo Brioni’s products can also be applied personally, completely toxic free and hypoallergenic. Any stains can be removed simply with water.
Matteo Brioni’s products are 100% recyclable. Every component and any production waste can be recovered and reprocessed. The water required for the mix to make bricks, plasters and compounds returns to the environment during the drying process evaporating into the air. In addition, the production cycle consumes up to 60% less primary energy as compared to terracotta, without significant CO2 emission to the atmosphere.
All Matteo Brioni’s products are non-toxic and contribute substantially to improve the microclimate inside buildings, due to earth’s following characteristics.
Comfort and Health
All Matteo Brioni’s products are non-toxic and contribute substantially to the improvement of the microclimate inside buildings, due to the earth’s following qualities:
Ability to regulate humidity
The earth absorbs large amounts of humidity (20 times more than the best brick) and releases them into the environment gradually, keeping the humidity level constant and optimal throughout the entire day.
The earth is statically neutral and is not subject to degradation over time leading to the disintegration of matter (with risk of inhalation). Reduces dust formation and contributes to the prevention of respiratory diseases, such as asthma and allergies.
No toxic fumes
Due to its mineralogical structure, the earth does not emit radiation and helps to protect against electromagnetic fields. The clay, a fundamental constituent of the earth, is non-toxic: does not suffer complex and impacting alterations or processing, and has always been used for its healing, cosmetic and antiseptic properties.
Adobe bricks maintain a cool temperature in summer and store heat in the winter, helping to maximize the energy efficiency of buildings.
Sound and odor absorption
The earth, and earth products not only have excellent sound absorption qualities, but they have the ability to absorb and neutralize harmful substances, odors and smoke.
The earth, as such, fireproofs fibrous aggregates of natural origin (eg. straw) with which it is often paired and mixed.
Matteo Brioni is continuously engaged in developing new products and improving the quality of existing products gradually increasing the performance while respecting the environment.
Matteo Brioni is continuously engaged in developing new products and improving the quality of existing products gradually increasing the performance while respecting the environment. In his laboratory he experiments on materials and consults with green architecture “gurus” and technical experts. MB collaborates with several Italian Universities (Polytechnic of Milan, University of Cagliari, etc.) on projects to improve the production process and enhance architectural culture and local handicrafts with earth.
Certifications of compliance with applicable regulations, laboratory analysis and university research are the foundation of our products and innovations.
