Las Vegas Goes Green With Mafi-America

Mafi Brings Eco-Friendly Solutions to the Vegas Strip

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - March 21, 2011) - Nikki Beach Club Las Vegas has brought the best of their South Beach, Marbella and St. Tropez-inspired designs to the newly renovated Tropicana Las Vegas. Nikki Beach Club Las Vegas will be the largest Nikki Beach property in the world, and will combine one of the most stylish brands with one of the most legendary hotels on The Strip. Nikki Beach Club has been designed by Laurence Lee Associates and the installation is being done by the Collings Interiors.

Nic Neumann, CEO of Mafi-America, notes that, "Mafi Tiger Oak Translucent, a revolutionary flooring utilizing embedded LED lights, will be used for the first time in the U.S. on all bar fronts, and Mafi Beech Fresco Duna will clad columns in the club. This will be a one-of-a-kind interior in which European elegance meets a never-seen-before Vegas nightlife experience."

Contemporary Vegas casinos are working with Green Key, which rates hotels and casinos and helps them to achieve the highest possible environmental rating (LEED). Sustainable Mafi flooring products are 100% green, non-toxic and environmentally friendly, and will contribute greatly to the green campaign in Vegas.
