Project realized for Private Residence

Preserved

A modern and elegant piece of furniture

Carlo Civera, over the years, has always experimented with new ways to introduce nature into masonry spaces created by man. From this “green” philosophy comes the idea of using preserved natural lichen (also commonly called Moss) to create vegetable paintings with zero maintenance. Thanks to the characteristics and the different colors of the preserved lichen, Carlo Civera can realize many creative projects. There is no standard product , you can customize:

  • The size of the frame
  • The colors of the lichens
  • The frame
licheni stabilizzati

The origin

The origin of lichen is to be found in the uncontaminated nature of the Lapland woods: here it grows in protected areas and guarantees the natural ecosystem of the surrounding environment. The preserved lichens, also called “Moss”, used in the projects signed by Carlo Civera are 100% natural, collected without damaging the vegetation and preserved with non-toxic substances. This innovative process replaces the sap with a completely biodegradable product based on natural glycerine and water. Thanks to this treatment the vegetal paintings or the walls of preserved lichens made by Carlo Civera maintain their beauty and prosperity for more than 8 years.

 

Use

The characteristics of lichen

Thanks to the preserved lichens Carlo Civera combines in its projects both the technical and the aesthetic aspects with a single budget. The main feature of lichen, in fact, is its high sound-absorbing performance: it reduces the sound frequency of the voice by 90% It also has no bacterial charge, does not attract dust, is fireproof, unwelcome to insects, does not grow, should not be pruned and should not be irrigated. These characteristics, combined with long life (maintain its beauty for over 8 years), make preserved lichen the ideal product in the field of interior decoration and for creating indoor green areas.
