Eco-conscious wallcovering hits the mark

27 May 2021

Responding to demand from architects, designers and other stakeholders in the built environment for greener materials, Belgian firm Omexco has developed High Performance. This innovative new wallcovering collection offers a sustainable choice as well as a stylish and sturdy one.

Omexco’s High Performance wallcovering can add drama to interiors

With World Environment Day around the corner on June 5th and COP26 the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Scotland just six months away, green issues remain firmly on the agenda for 2021. The building construction industry needs to play its part, especially as according to the United Nations Environment Programme, the sector is responsible for 38% of global carbon emissions.

A mood board from the research and development phase of High Performance

So it’s no surprise then that there is a huge demand for sustainable solutions from architects, designers and those involved in specifying for products for commercial interiors. Which is where High Performance comes in. This is a brand new wallcovering from Omexco, made out of recycled materials, containing no PVC or harmful substances and entirely breathable. Created after several years of research and development, High Performance is an ecological alternative to vinyl, while having very similar properties. Omexco has developed a solution that is composed of recycled fibres and that meets the high technical demands of the contract market.

Blush shades create harmony in a bedroom

This Belgian manufacturer is committed to green business, with its factory powered by solar panels and water is recycled back into production. The whole collection is printed with water soluble ink and without heavy metals. That said, there are no compromises when it comes to how it looks or performs. There are five different textile textures: Denim, Abaca, Silky, Tussah and Linen. Each one has eleven colourways with bespoke colours available. The five different textures are totally seamless and easy to install, measuring one metre wide. And because it’s sold by the metre, waste is minimised. Plus, as the name suggests, this is a very strong, heavy duty wallcovering.

As well as looking the part, High Performance also has strong sustainability credentials.

To address global warming and scarcity of raw materials, High Performance clearly demonstrates Omexco’s long-term commitment to producing ecological wallcoverings. It is a beautiful yet sustainable collection that is ideal for commercial environments.

High Performance is suitable for a variety of environments, including retail spaces
