Carrozzeria Castagna Milano has patented a new digital woodworking process that led to the development of the finish called WoodFabric. To unveil this new material, a customized version of the hybrid Range Rover Evoque has been created, shown online following the cancellation of the Salone del Mobile, where it has to be inveiled.
Malleable wood like fabric
Behind the slogan “Wood outside, wood inside”, the atelier confirms its traditional use of this material, often used to decorate the interiors and exteriors of cars. WoodFabric, is innovative and immune to temperature changes, humidity and UV rays and can be used in all conditions without losing its main characteristics and qualities. WoodFabric feels at the touch like printed fabric, but retain the reflections and texture of the original material becoming malleable to the point of being able to cover the dashboard, seats and panels without the use of molds
Gray, blue and coffee colors
The Evoque made by Carrozzeria Castagna features external oak woodstrips which follow the coachline starting from the rearlight LEDs. The interior, on the other hand, offers a completely new glance: the gray-blue leather, coordinated with the dominant color of the bodywork, has in fact been combined with Alcantara coffee-colored, pearl-gray metallic finishes and WoodFabric inserts on the backrest and on the dashboard
