The architectural structure and form of the Expo ‘98 Portuguese National Pavilion work in perfect harmony. The heart of the project is a large, incredibly thin covering, hung effortlessly between the two striking arcades like a veil. Under the masterful touch of Álvaro Siza Vieira, physics and form are theatrically united, while simplicity and clarity elevate the Pavilion to the highest levels of modern sophistication. The roof is supported by two monumental “pillars”, behind one of which lies the building housing the pavilion’s main exhibition spaces. The arcades, while playing an important structural role, are architectural elements in themselves. This element itself becomes a building in the project. Each one has nine solid pillars arranged in a spectacularly rhythmic, but provocatively asymmetrical manner. The deep cuts between the columns create strong contrasts of light and shade, highlighting the clean lines of the columnar profiles. Perhaps the pavilion’s most surprising quality is its interaction between moments of delicacy and monumentality.
Introducing Bold, the new support for Londonart internal wall coverings, featuring an embossed and irregular texture reminiscent of the artistic surface of a painting. The result is opulent, packed with content and very eye-catching and pleasant to the touch. Bold is very hard-wearing and resistant to knocks as well as being easy to maintain. This is due to the combination of the vinyl backing and 100% cotton cloth. It is made entirely in Italy with Italian raw materials.
Due to its versatility and technical features, this new support is not only ideal for home use, but also for the contract world and all public settings, such as offices and shops and wherever you need to reconcile practicality with aesthetic appeal. Bold is the tangible answer to functional project requirements, offering versatile application with total freedom to interpret the space.

From Londonart’s technological research comes the new Soundproof wall covering, the innovative sound-absorbing support that is the concrete solution whenever acoustics are as fundamental as aesthetics. Soundproof has an excellent soundproofing and sound-absorbing capacity; this not only reduces the noises coming from outside the building, but also those generated in the rooms or adjacent housing units. The acoustic comfort performance, generated by the vinyl fabric structured in different layers, lets you create environments in perfect balance between absorption and reflection of sound waves. It is entirely made in Italy.
Thanks to the closed cell PVC foam layer, Soundproof reduces noises coming both from outside and inside a building. The support, intervening technically on the reverberation, is particularly suitable for all environments that require greater tranquillity, like: executive and operative offices, open-plan offices, restaurants, gyms, swimming pools, and private homes. Furthermore, by meeting the needs of acoustic correction, it is also suitable for all places that require purity in the diffusion of sounds, like: cinemas and audition halls, conference halls, theatres, clubs, domestic environments with Hi-Fi systems. The ease of application of the product lets you create articulated compositions of great impact easily and quickly, and, thanks to its thickness, it can be applied on walls that are not perfectly treated, hiding irregularities.
