Offering architects, interior designers and distributors choice and inspiration, Formica Group’s stand 243 will be showcasing materials for interior use. Meanwhile stand 242 will be reserved for displaying decors from the VIVIX® exterior façade panel range which offer new aesthetic and practical options for rainscreen cladding.
Lisa Daaboul, UK and Central Marketing Manager from Formica Group commented: “We have a range of materials being displayed at Architect@Work Rotterdam that offer architects, designers and specifiers a whole palette to choose from to enhance interior and exterior environments yet are also a practical solution. Our new introductions have been created to make specification easy – whatever the demands”.
The interior stand (243) will present Formica Group’s enhanced Washroom Collection. A combination of Formica® High Pressure Laminate (HPL) and Formica® Compact; it is ideal for use in areas of high humidity and wear, allowing the creation of hygienic, durable and easy to maintain surfaces. Typical applications include wall panelling, cubicles, doors and lockers. The collection also includes a wide range of colours, patterns, wood decors and textures as well as the possibility of designing your own laminate. To showcase the new designs, Formica Group will exhibit a locker unit, manufactured by Kupan and featuring wood decors such as Neutral Twill, Sarum Twill and Graphite Twill in the red dot award winning Plex™ texture.
Formica Group will also showcase its refreshed ColorCore range, combining the potential of a through-colour product with an extended colour palette and texture choice. The range includes the new finish Plex, an avant-garde texture with a textile feel and dry touch, which recreates authentic aesthetics and adds dimension to the surface. The ColorCore® range is FSC® Certified as standard, offering an FSC® 70% Mix product claim. Hard-wearing and robust, ColorCore® laminate is ideal for surfacing in high-traffic environments.
