A Brand New Finish from Formica Limited Brings Texture to Life

17 September, 2008. Formica Limited continues to innovate through its ongoing product design and development process. The premium new texture, Sculpted by Formica®, is a testament to this. Premiering at 100% Design Exhibition, Earl’s Court, London from 18-21 September 2008, Sculpted will be showcased on the Formica® stand E90.

Texture adds another sense to your surroundings. Equally important, it creates interest. Whether used on interior wall coverings, on furniture and fittings or as panels, Sculpted will transform a surface. A beautifully tactile option, Sculpted offers an on-trend look that answers perfectly the demand for sculpted, scraped and wire-brushed surfaces.

Available in a 3050 x 1300mm sheet size in HGP (Horizontal Grade Postforming) Formica® High Pressure Laminate, this new line features 12 colours. From the subtle neutrals of Kashmir and Storm, to Lime and the vibrant orange of Levante, or the mellow tone of Cassis, this exciting finish creates an additional dimension to plain colour surfaces.

Through product development which utilises new technology in the manufacturing process, Formica Limited has been able to create exciting new

textures which are unique and offer enhanced style opportunities. As an innovator and leader in the industry, Formica Limited is constantly working to provide exclusive, on-trend products and designs that inspire and excite architects and designers across the UK and Ireland.

Today the pursuit of continued innovation sees manufacturers and designers working side by side to push forward the boundaries and help create an environment full of atmosphere and ambience, and that will enhance the structure and lines of an interior.
