SLIM is the first chair to be made of Luran by Softline All Kit. The thermoplastic stands out for its high transparency and brilliance, making it the material of choice for designers aiming to create eye-catching items. When it comes to the manufacture of transparent furniture, Luran’s high stiffness, low density and ease of processing allow this plastic to replace other transparent materials such as PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate) or PC (polycarbonate). Luran is more resistant to scratches and stress cracking than PC. “This material is not only easy to process, it is also highly resistant to chemicals,” explains Manuela Marzona, working at Softline All Kit. “This makes the chair sturdy, esthetically appealing and comfortable at the same time.” The SLIM chair was showcased at the plastics trade fair in Düsseldorf and can be purchased from Softline. Softline All Kit is an Italian manufacturer of furniture and accessories headquartered near Pavia di Udine. www.softline-allkit.com BASF Aktiengesellschaft 67056 Ludwigshafen Telefon: +49 621 60-0 http://www.basf.de Communications Plastics www.basf.de/plastics Page 2 P 534/07e Information about Luran can be found at: www.luran.de Technical questions can be addressed to email@example.com or by calling phone no.: [+49] (0) 621 60 41446.
