Japanese plaster is a traditional interior wall finish used for hundreds of years in Japan for both residential and commercial spaces. Satori finishes are a natural earth sand based product which has been modernized to provide consistent color and durability. The coatings are applied by hand trowel similar to venetian Italian plaster, however, the look and feel is distinctly Eastern as well as contemporary. A variety of exotic additives imported from Japan such as Japanese rice straw and seashells may be selected and combined with the plaster, for stunning results.
Satori finishes consist of the Elements, Universe, and Harmony series of wall coatings. Each series brings a unique and contemporary exotic look to interior design. Elements is natural and earthy, Universe is shimmery and takes you out of the ordinary, and Harmony for walls and ceilings offers “freedom from flat” surroundings because it is texturizable. The Harmony series also has been tested in Japan for its ability to absorb and break down formaldehyde, a common indoor air problem.
