New technologies of ” air ” furniture
Perhaps the most unusual design options for home interiors can be called samples of ” air ” furniture. This technology uses a fairly old principle that has been successfully implemented in the production of air mattresses for several decades. The only difference is in the complexity of the structures, the intensity of their use and the scale of production.
By the way, the designs of the past had one very significant drawback, which significantly reduced their service life — they were made of PVC (even earlier-from dense rubber) and had welded seams. With prolonged or improper use, these seams could quickly fail and start to leak air. In addition, such products had restrictions on the weight of the sitting person and were not suitable for repair.
Modern models have a warranty period of more than ten years, they are produced by a seamless method, easy to clean and repair. Besides. You can independently adjust the level of elasticity of your furniture by adjusting the air pressure inside each element.
New technologies for using universal chipboard in furniture
Perhaps the most popular material for the manufacture of furniture structures today is laminated chipboard. The material itself is also well known to any professional and consumer.
Chipboard is a cheap analogue of natural wood and veneer. Thanks to various surface painting technologies, such furniture can imitate stone, wood of any species, plastic, ceramics, and even metal. At the same time, the laminate layer reliably protects any product from moisture, ensuring environmental friendliness and durability of your home environment.
New furniture technologies make it possible to widely use chipboard not only for the production of economy-class furniture, but also for the Assembly of headsets that have a higher consumer class.
Technical tricks in furniture production technologies
Unfortunately, most of the technical innovations that are actively used in the manufacture of upholstered and Cabinet furniture were invented outside of Russia, but this does not prevent them from being actively used in domestic furniture production.
Among the most notable and popular new furniture technologies:
Using a high-precision laser to firmly fix the facing edge, increase moisture resistance and significantly improve aesthetic characteristics.
Application of nesting technology, developed about 20 years ago and based on economical cutting of large-size fiberboard. This technology significantly saves time on the preparation of parts and allows you to get ready-made components of a high level of accuracy.
Design innovations that are achieved by modern technological means include a variety of types of surface aging. This can be textural structuring, effective brushing, patinating with special compositions. For this purpose, both mechanical and chemical processing is used. The aged surface looks especially advantageous in products of the modern stylistic direction of Provence; as well as imitation of rough processing to give the interior a brutal Gothic look.
Continuing the theme of imitation of old furniture in modern production, it is worth paying special attention to new furniture technologies that allow you to combine elements of different styles and directions in a single interior.
Eclecticism has gained popularity due to the widespread collection of ethnic and subcultural souvenir items.
To make the” trophies ” of avid travelers look organic in a single space of the house, many collections use modular technologies that allow you to combine elements depending on the variety of colors of the interior background and individual accents.
New and modern technologies in furniture at exhibitions
You can see all the most advanced new furniture technologies and the results of their application at regular specialized furniture exhibitions held at Expocentre (for example, the Mebel exhibition, held every autumn). Here you can learn in detail not only about foreign technologies, but also about the developments of domestic manufacturers used in the manufacture of furniture for home and office.
