(Italian for nest)
Traditionally used, the Formica HPL when in-situ appears strong and solid, we see it being used to bring structural elements to a form. For my brief I wanted to challenge my own and others’ perception of Formica laminate and create a very organic, visually light product. My vision behind my concept was to use heavy solid stone look laminate and create an object that embodies all the qualities that stone is not. The Formica laminate allows for flexibility and practicality, yet creates the illusion of a solid stone structure.
