Phoebe shares, “Coming from agency life, I have a diverse background. I’ve touched technology and automotive and so many different segments. Many of our collaborators at the ALC also have those diverse backgrounds. We can literally call on people for the technology piece. This is something special because it is beyond being a great designer. It is having that other dimension.” This and more about the Ageless Living Collaborative on part 2 of today’s episode with Phoebe Stein and David Ashen.

Inspired by the properties of photocatalytic materials, Porcelanosa has evolved their KRION® Solid Surface material called K-LIFE. When K-LIFE comes into contact with light, it will be able to purify the air, expel harmful bacteria, and more. K-LIFE can easily be integrated into many applications – from wall coverings and claddings for ceilings, to custom tables, bars, sinks, shelving units and furniture. The application of K-LIFE in areas with high daily traffic, such as waiting rooms or reception areas, can assure a gradual decontamination of germs and lead to ongoing ecological benefits. Some research performed with KRION® K-LIFE, which has photocatalytic properties, proved that the material can significantly reduce the presence of bacteria. This revolutionary process has led to a patent pending, innovative, and exclusive product that will have a direct effect on our quality of life. Watch the video on KRION Natural Infection Prevention.
