Every UNILIN Evola design starts with an original surface, from which begins an intensive process of design development. Using the original sample, UNILIN’s design and R&D teams begin to work together to create a surface that’s as close to the ‘real thing’ as possible, examining every detail and translating this into an easy to maintain surface that outperforms the original in many ways.
“If you want real wood, you’ll always choose the original example,” explains Ann De Blanck, product manager, UNILIN. “If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly alternative with lasting looks and real-world performance, then you’ll turn to UNILIN Evola.
“Easier to look after and far more resistant to scratches and UV light, all of our decors are designed with one ultimate goal in mind – if you put our end product next to the real thing, then you won’t be able to see a difference.”
With 168 decors available in UNILIN Evola, variation is also a key ingredient in the development mix. By treating the original materials, adding saw cuts or patina to the original for example, UNILIN is able to achieve a unique variety. The process is always one of skill with a fine-line being tread between attractively authentic and hopelessly overdone.
