DesignerPly is a decorative range of plywood specially selected to create a visual impact – from wall panelling, joinery and ceiling panels. The DesignerPly range offers an extensive range of products for many applications, with clear and feature veneers to pre-finished Powder Coated surfaces to achieve your desired designs. 

Studio Edwards has converted a trio of shipping containers into a weekend retreat overlooking the Otway Coast called House28. The interior, using DesignerPly for all surfaces, successfully creates a calm, tranquil atmosphere ensuring a relaxing holiday. 

About using DesignerPly in a kitchen, Architect Ben Edwards recommended using a thicker timber for the smaller panel sizes to ensure the natural product will not warp. Mentioning kitchen cabinets specifically, Ben recommends the 19mm sheet size. Speaking of DesignerPly Marine Ben said “With that being an A grade product as well, the thing is when you put the sheets next to each other they look continuous. There are no huge variations in the different colourings of grains.” 

The many options of powder coating mean any colour is available, with the ability to keep the natural beauty of plywood showing through should that be the desire. Clear and lime wash options have been the favourite option thus far, with black powder coating gaining popularity quickly.
