Tasty Veneers By Architectural Systems


Architectural accents you actually want to eat. We have a weakness for these (something to do with that primal stage of teething). Architectural Systems, which bills itself as an architectural materials provider, uses rapidly-renewable organic materials to create the handcrafted Tropical Veneer collection, which can be used for wall applications, doors, ceilings, screens, and furniture. MDF and resins are used as a base for exotic ingredients including Tagua seed, coconut, and pearlstone (shown left to right, above), Totumo Shell, and Plaintain Bark. The veneers also contribute to the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED MR Credit 6: Rapidly Renewable Materials. Want to see them in action? Check out the Compass Café in San Francisco or the Landmark Restaurant in Chicago. ::Architectural Systems via ::Interior Design
