RF Studio came to American Supply researching a specific material for The Agora showcase at Maison & Objet. The team chose our material “Billy” in the Mysterious Forest colorway out of our vast index of more than 10,000 material references.
The material is a fire resistant complex of PET over MDF wood. In this particular circumstance, it was laminated on boards of 3m by 0.6m, enabling the perfect flatness for the support, essential to preserve the iridescent and metallic qualities unique to the product. Billy was originally intended for the fashion industry and exists in a wide range of colors.
