Lumetta

Today we looked at Lumetta's updated products in the office.

What is unique about them is their wide variety of finishes. They updated their printed patterns and finishes to be multistaged prints that are UV and fade protected, and fire-rated (in some).

The printed finishes and acoustic materials could be washed and wiped down with commercial soaps.

Their products are great for hospitality, corporate offices, educational centers, and commercial projects.
