25 new options aimed at meeting demand for design versatility and bespoke interior schemes
Formica Group addresses the demand for design versatility and bespoke interior schemes in the washroom sector with the launch of the extended Formica Washroom Collection.
A comprehensive resource of materials and decors, the collection features a strong palette including 25 new decors, and introduces Younique by Formica Group, a custom laminate service which allows architects, designers and fabricators to create a truly-bespoke look.
Offering a combination of Formica High Pressure Laminate (HPL) and Formica Compact, the Formica Washroom Collection offers a solution for all application areas and performance levels. The key benefit provided by these products, especially Compact grade, is that of resistance to humidity and high wear, essential in the washroom environment. Laminates are also hygienic, durable, easy to clean and maintain.
For architects, designers, and specifiers who must balance cost, durability and flexibility with great design; the Formica Washroom Collection offers an extremely practical and versatile range of laminates, produced to conform to a variety of safety standards including resistance to surface water, and scratching. In addition to being functional; the collection comprises a wide range of patterns, textures, colours. Bespoke printing options allow washrooms to be customised to suit particular decorative or corporate colour schemes.
Developed exclusively by Formica Group’s in-house design team, 25 brand new decors and three new textures have been introduced in response to the latest design trends.
Eva Hoernisch, design manager at Formica Group Europe, said: “Continuing our legacy as a design innovator, we have developed five brand new Plain Colours, introduced seven different shades of Paloma - a versatile ‘speckle’ pattern - and brought in Twill, a new pattern based on a multi-colour fabric with a subtle and random stripe effect.”
“An important aspect when putting the range together was to enable architects, designers and manufacturers to create harmonious mix-and-match colour schemes. Patterns such as Paloma and Twill work brilliantly with Plain Colours and Woods, and can even function as a link between these two décor groups.”
Also introduced were Puregrain, Linewood and Plex textures. The red dot design award-winning Plex has been used to accompany the Twill pattern – a truly perfect match to create a textile look, with the colour play and crisp detail providing an ideal base for Plex to unfold its beauty.
Washroom design, in terms of both colour scheme and pattern layout, plays an important part in creating facilities that are attractive and functional. The Formica Washroom Collection offers extensive design freedom for washrooms and changing rooms in a number of sectors. The in-house design team combined both well-established and brand new colours and decors that complement each other to provide architects and designers with everything they need to create an outstanding washroom area. Whether looking for bright and vibrant colours, or subtle and elegant woodgrain options, the Formica Washroom Collection meets the most-demanding design requirements. Incorporating key design schemes and colours in washrooms allows for a continuous branding or corporate identity experience throughout a building.
Included for the first time within the Formica Washroom Collection; Younique is a custom laminate service which allows any individual design, images and logos to be replicated on a laminate sheet. This service is ideal for companies who wish to match a corporate colour or a brand logo, but can also be used to replicate any individual design.
The Formica Washroom Collection provides architects, designers and specifiers with solutions to suit any number of different washroom designs and complement the style of the rest of the building, including corporate colours and branding within washroom areas. Combined with the hard-wearing, impact-resistant and easy-to-maintain qualities of Formica laminate; this portfolio provides a mix of essential materials, textures and decors ideal for any washroom environment.
