Torvtak middle green


A moss panel or moss wall by Nature at home is a beautiful natural, maintenance friendly eyecatcher

in every interior. A moss wall is a great alternative for living plants and provides a

decorative “green’ enrichment to every room. This Icelandic moss also has a strong soundabsorbing

effect. The Torvak is Icelandic moss originating from Northern Europe. After

harvesting, the moss is treated with glycerine and potentially impregnated with colour, making

it permanently soft, elastic, dirt-repelling, and fire-retardant. The moss is processed on MDF

sheets of 10 mm thick. The panels are supplied as natural tiles of 50 x 50 mm or as customised

for projects. The panels are for interior use. The Torvtak does not need water or daylight. At

humidity less than 30%, the moss can dry slightly, causing a reduction in its elasticity. Though,

as soon as the humidly rises again, the elasticity recovers. The application possibilities of

Icelandic moss are never ending!

Reindeer mosses have hollow branches without marrow, making them look like plants. The lichen lives in a nature reserve of around 300 km2, and are harvested under government supervision. This process is completely harmless, and the mosses regrow themselves.

After harvesting, the mosses are collected, cleaned, and naturally treated with a chlorophyll gel or glycerin. This treatment keeps the soft structure of the moss, and ensures that the plant repels dirt and is fire-retardant. The mosses can be coloured by adding natural pigments to the glycerin during the process. This treatment is beneficial because the moss repels insects.

The backings are processed without chemical adhesives, but instead with natural resin. The stabilised moss does not need sunlight, water, or maintenance to preserve its colour and shape. The moss has a lifespan of more than 8 years.
