Product: 90mm Standard Lining Board in Satin UV
Finding a balance between aesthetics and functionality is often a challenge. The recent designFARM walling fit-out easily achieved balance between the two, using our prefinished timber lining boards to create a striking feature wall. The walling was erected at designFARM in anticipation for the launch of their new “Home” range in the basement of the design precinct. In our range, Tasmanian Oak was chosen as it is neutral enough to work with the arrangement of furniture pieces in the interior, but still gains strong visual interest. It really makes use of “less is more.” As Tasmanian Oak is part of our UV colour range, the lighting in the space softly highlights the satin finish of the boards. The boards were installed horizontally to create a dramatic effect, while highlighting the designer furniture pieces.
The metal “cubes” attached to the wall which encage new furniture pieces are also able to be moved around, unlocked by a secret hooking system behind the negative detail. The black detailing assists in shaping the furniture, and makes a bold design statement. Using Glosswood in the space has brought a sense of warmth and visual interest to the interior, reflecting the qualities of the designer furniture – genuine and authentic.
