Participants in this week’s KBDi PD Tuesday were privy to a ‘behind the scenes’ scoop on the Laminex Colour Collection 2021.

Laminex Product Design Manager, Neil Sookee, shared the nature-inspired drivers behind the Living Pigments collection.

From the sunburnt hues of ochre and terracotta to the sandy tones of beaches and deserts, the collection reflects the longing for nature we’ve developed over the last 18 months. We especially loved the new full-bodied greens – Hushed Pine and Olivine – evocative of foliage and forests.

We were also delighted to see how the Living Pigments colour collection paired with the Calm Character line (like the Hushed Pine and Manhattan Concrete above). The ten new Laminex decors celebrate the natural, textural beauty of marble, terrazzo and timber. View the full range here.

Last but not least, Members loved the design potential of the Surround by Laminex wall linings. The pre-primed sheets are made in Australia with raw MDF and a clever tongue and groove system. With a contemporary and classic range, the panels will have many exciting applications, and we can’t wait to see them in our Members’ feeds and folios. Discover the full range of products here.

If you love to know more about the ‘hows and whys’ of new decors, we encourage you to check out the recording of this session. Neil and the Laminex team shared some fantastic stories about the inspiration behind the latest colours and textures and the formula Laminex use when adding new lines. They shared insights into the manufacturing processes and impacts of Covid-19 on supply and reminded us of the excellent sampling available for specifiers. You’ll find this recording in your exclusive KBDi Members Portal.
