Total Performance Silk Plaster
Silk Plaster® brings a refined atmosphere to interior architecture with its smooth burnished surface, natural depth, and soft luminous color without being dominating or trendy. It is our custom Venetian Plaster designed both as an alternative to paint, and to overcome the challenges of specifying lime-based Venetian Plaster on a large scale. It allows precise control of color, burnish and dimensional effect. Silk Plaster® is best appreciated in its magnitude bringing “materiality” to walls, solid-built character to a home, and allows interior architecture to breathe with a refinement that beckons to be touched.
One definition of architecture is that it is “a way to capture light”. The architect determines the orientation of the building and then determines where opening will be located in the structure for natural light. The lighting designer determines light sources for the night or dark conditions.
Silk Plaster® acts as a uniquely sensitive register for the natural shifting and pooling of light through interior space, which is unique to every building. Its smooth surface seems to gently emit light and light seems to hover over it, adding a soft natural depth and luminescence emulating the grace and tactile feel of silk in a range of burnish from flat, eggshell, pearl, or a wax-polish.
With a timeless refined beauty, it complements fine woods and stone, gives fine art an appropriate home, and brings wholeness to interiors essentially making everything else look better.
Silk Plaster® is a unique integral colored acrylic plaster with marble powder that is more stable than conventional integral plasters (ie. Venetian style plasters). It is very long-lasting natural finish unparalleled in the wall finishing industry because it carries a guarantee of invisible repair, and an unprecedented range of design/build benefits making our work indestructible and installations problem free.
