Interior Design recently visited Porcelanosa's Krion showroom to see the solid surfacing product the Spain-based manufacturer will debut at NeoCon. First, we saw its application as an exterior material in the Butech space, where the company displays systems for ventilated facades, among other technical products.

Krion was developed by Systempool, another company owned by the Porcelanosa Group. It is made of two-thirds natural materials (ATH – aluminium trihydride) and resins. The material can be milled like wood, thermally formed, or injection-molded. Along with UV- and fire-resistant properties, it has minimal porosity, making it resistant to bacteria, graffiti, and stains. It is 100 percent recyclable at the end of its life cycle.
