Arborite Introduces 36 new Designs That Play Well With Others

The new offering includes an original finish texture and 36 fresh designs (7 Pearlescent, 9 Patterns, 10 Woodgrains, 10 Solid Colors)- but this launch is less about each design, and more about how they harmonize with other materials. “It’s customary for companies to push their design rationale,” said Terry Gentile, marketing and design director for Arborite, “but I’d rather tell the trend stories that inspire our work. So when architects and designers are searching for ways to express how a project is supposed to feel, they understand we are coming from the same place. That we consider more than just the laminate.”

Usually when an Arborite representative visits a design firm, it is to leave samples of the latest high-pressure laminate designs. But Sept. 20-22, 2017 Arborite’s team, in conjunction with co-sponsor Wilsonart, will call on design firms to take samples away. And not just HPL, they’ll take unused brochures, fabrics and finish cards, too.  

Arborite + Ouli Pair for Sight Unseen Offsite

Canadian laminate producer Arborite has teamed with the design duo behind LA-based Ouli to create a standout exhibit for Sight Unseen OFFSITE’s 2016 edition. For this play on a dining set composed of table, bench, and chairs, designer Brooke Intrachat focused on the idea of reinvention, asking the question does progress exist within aesthetics? Using a versatile product like laminate, the Ouli designers have created thought-provoking pieces that turn design standards on their heads.

Arborite Launches Maison Collection for the Home

Panorama and Welcome Home Introduce Arborite to the Residential Market with Kitchen-Focused Product Lines. Arborite is bringing its material expertise to the residential sector with Maison, a new family of products designed exclusively for the kitchen. Maison, which launches across both the US and Canada in 2016, will be the umbrella for curated lines focused on the residential consumer and specifically, the kitchen. To start off, Maison will encompass the Panorama and Welcome Home series, pairing the luxurious aesthetic of natural stone with the versatility and convenience of high-pressure laminate. Panorama’s full-scale scans capture the unique imperfections and veining of true stone, while Welcome Home’s neutral palette emulates composite stone. 

Panorama Transforms the Natural Wonder of Stone Into Elegant Laminates

New Series Uses Real Stone Slabs To Create An Authentic Look Ideal For Kitchens. Arborite is bringing their Panorama series of true-to-life stone look laminates to the kitchen as part of their new Maison collection. This residentially focused line celebrates the genuine scale and veining of luxurious granite and marble often sought after in homes, but with the sustainable, easy-to-maintain, and affordable benefits of laminate. To fully capture this look, the Arborite design team painstakingly selected real stone slabs to create the resulting laminate, which showcases the grand scale and elegant imperfections found in the original stone.
