ALPI/Brookside Veneers @Boutique Design New York 2022
ALPI is again taking part in Boutique Design New York, the leading trade fair for interior designers active in the boutique and lifestyle sector of the hospitality industry in the United States, Canada and Europe. Held on 13 and 14 November, the American fair will be an occasion for ALPI to illustrate its ability to satisfy the creative needs of architects and designers with the presentation of the new ALPIready collection.
Being the fruit of in-house research and innovative technology, ALPIready is a unique decorative surface in prefinished wood, ready for use. Two united layers of ALPI veneer make one panel of ALPIready – all wood, varnished on the outward-facing side, ready for application on all kinds of surfaces. The product is robust, flexible and easy to use.
The collection contains 30 patterns. These include the classics from the Wood Collection such as Black Walnut and Oak; the noble tropical veneers from the Legacy Collection; and the special patterns from the Designer Collection created by international talents – see the new Wavy Fir veneer designed by Raw Edges.
Exceptional experience in the processing of raw wood has allowed ALPI to engineer a varnish that exalts the naturalness and colour of each veined pattern. ALPI also produces matching edge banding for each pattern.
In line with the sustainable approach at ALPI and the company’s constant striving for excellence in the use of natural resources, ALPIready is made with wood from correctly and responsibly managed forests.

French Palette by Piero Lissoni
The new “French Palette” collection is inspired by the French painting of the early 1700s, where the tones were often delicate and light. A project that takes the research on color to a higher step, conveying ALPI’s deeper sense of the material and its aesthetic culture. Each color comes from careful study, during which Piero Lissoni, together with the ALPI technical division, has measured and balanced every single nuance to achieve the desired effect.
A palette of soft but forceful tones, hints of evergreens, and more refined nuances like teal blue and burgundy.
The new collection is produced in poplar wood from Italian arboriculture sites, and hence with totally sustainable raw materials. Ecological renewable raw material par excellence.
Wavy Fir by Raw Edges
The collection stems from the reinterpretation of the raw material, with the aim of expressing the sensation of natural wood through graphic motifs. Inspired by the typical striped grain of fir and pine, the studio Raw Edges has shaped soft curves to create a surprising graphic pattern.
The Wavy Fir wood available in two color variants plays with the “zoom in/zoom out” dialectic, giving rise to different perceptions: seen overall, the wood has an utterly natural look, but from up close it is possible to observe the undulating movement of the grain, bringing a sense of dynamism to the surface.
Wood Collection by Piero Lissoni
This year ALPI, together with Piero Lissoni, reinterprets the elegance of mahogany in the ALPI Honduras wood, a surface with a contemporary language that offers new expressive possibilities while expanding the range of application of this precious species.
Piero Lissoni, a designer with a refined approach and a minimalist style, explores new expressions of mahogany through the model ALPI Honduras, replicating its natural beauty while bringing out the original chromatic properties and grain. The result is an intense texture of brown tones that adds character and refinement to spaces. ALPI thus expands the range of application of mahogany to all types of interior design, making it possible to clad any surface or volume with this wood.
Designer Collection by Patricia Urquiola
The new Designer Collection created by Patricia Urquiola is based on the desire to explore new stylistic codes through various contaminations derived from the world of architecture, while linking back to the outstanding heritage of ALPI in a tribute to the woods that have written the company’s history.
Patricia Urquiola thus combines tradition and innovation to give rise to wood patterns in the form of a grid, suggested by the orderly forms of contemporary architecture.
The new textures are divided into two variants, each representing a different aesthetic approach: the first, ALPI Grada, focuses on the use of color, while the second, ALPI Quadra, explores the concept of volume.
Gamperana Triplex, designed by Martino Gamper is a completely new type of wood with geometric texture and a combination of natural tones and color accents organized as a set of three different wood veneers.
