The magic of Italian design
The treatments by nano-technological processes allow the surfaces of FENIX® applied to the raw panels with minimal formaldehyde emission (class E1), implicitly the kitchens of FENIX to be: anti-fingerprint, hygienic, soft to the touch, impermeable, resistant to impact and rubbing, solvent resistant, repairable in the case of micro-scratches, with a large reduction of the bacterial load and with anti-mold properties.
FENIX® kitchen surfaces do not deteriorate near a heat source or in direct contact with water. And if the sink is in continuity with the countertop, then it is the best solution from an aesthetic point of view: you can create a perfect monolith made up of the countertop, door fronts and sink, all made of the same material.
How is the wonder material produced?
The core is made of paper impregnated with heat-resistant resins, while the outer surface is treated with next-generation acrylic resins.
Then the surface undergoes the process of hardening and fixing with electron beam curing, which strengthens it, giving its very special features for the interior design world.
When viewed under a microscope, you can see that the surface of FENIX is uneven, like a landscape full of peaks and troughs. Rather than being reflected, the light is diffused, making FENIX highly opaque.
Its closed surface avoids the passage of dust and water, which simply slide off, thus FENIX NTM® is 100% hygienic and waterproof.
From micro to macro
When the dimensions reach infinitesimal levels – 1 nanometer = 1 millionth millimetres – the particles acquire physical and chemical properties that have already been used in other fields to obtain new and surprising materials.

FENIX NTA® – Real metal structure
FENIX NTA® is the evolution of Fenix and was released in May 2017. Its structure consists of a sheet of metal with a multi-layer coating and a surface treatment with next-generation acrylic resins, hardened and fixed by a surface special process.
Soft to the touch, anti-fingerprint, scratch-resistant, and thermal healing as FENIX NTM®, has a high resistance to acids, solvents, and domestic cleaning.
FENIX NTA is a harmonious blend of aesthetics and technical performance. Its metallic component makes it an extremely elegant, timeless material. Last but not least, it can be easily combined with other types of materials.
Highly hygienic, easy to clean, anti-fingerprint, antistatic and does not require special maintenance: a wet cloth with hot water and neutral detergents is enough to restore its original look. For aggressive stains and abrasions, switch on the magic sponge (melamine) and you’re done.
Available in 3 metallic finishes:
- Hamilton Stainless steel
- Cortez Gold
- Dukat Silver
Routine care and minor stains removal in a FENIX kitchen
- For regular cleaning simply use a soft, wet cloth or a microfibre cloth wet with hot water or detergents.
- To remove minor stains it is sufficient to use a non-abrasive cloth soaked in hot water.
FENIX Kitchen doors
- Fenix applied to the external and internal surfaces of MDF panels, with painted edges;
- Fenix applied to the external surfaces of particleboard panels and laminated to internal surfaces with coloured ABS edges;
- panel in solid HPL, internally composed of layers of cellulosic fibres, soaked in resin, and externally finished in layers of Fenix.
Fenix surfaced worktops are available in different thickness to meet the aesthetic needs of each single kitchen.
In our kitchens we use as base either particleboard panels surfaced with Fenix and with coloured ABS edges, or a panel in highly resistant solid HPL, composed of layers of cellulosic fibres, soaked in resin, and externally finished in layers of Fenix.
Materials of high aesthetic and functional standard
We offer an extensive range of innovative materials for the construction of a modern kitchen.
Very important in the choice of materials is the way the kitchen is used to establish the point of convergence between the aesthetic and functional factors.
