Wilsonart Contract Laminates “Go Wavy” with new options
(June 1, 2010 – Temple, TX) Vibrant. Fun. Confident. Bright color ushers in the new decade with a new design series from Wilsonart. Go Wavy is the newest addition to Wilsonart Contract Laminate— a series of 7 variations on a delicious abstract pattern that is aimed at healthcare and education markets.
“Despite the still-tough economy, some market segments remain strong,” says Gwen Petter, Wilsonart director of surface design. “An aging Baby Boom population promotes the growth of healthcare facilities: not only hospitals and clinics, but specialty and urgent care, rehabilitation centers and more. Education and child-care facilities are in a growth mode as well. The grandchildren and great grandchildren of the Baby Boomers represent their own ‘Baby Boomlet,’ prompting construction of day care centers and schools—from pre-K to college.”
Global influence also commands market attention with the full color spectrum in play. The brilliant hues of South America, Africa and Asia blend with texture and pattern in sometimes whimsical ways—adding life and fun to interiors. Optimistic colors in bright, clean hues reveal a new sense of honesty.
The Go Wavy series was designed to coordinate with sheet flooring, paint and textiles used for upholstery and cubicle curtains in Education and Healthcare facilities—specific requests from designers interviewed in developmental focus groups. The series, which takes its inspiration from the hues found in Farmers Markets and gardens, includes 7 colors:
4914-60 Pomegranate— deep natural red.
4913-60 Eggplant— a rich aubergine, sophisticated and dramatic.
4915-60 Tangerine— tangy orange, global and vibrant.
4916-60 Sweet Corn—creamed yellow.
4918-60 Sprout—a mid value green; supports organic green seen in vegetables and melons.
4917-60 Kiwi— yellow-green with versatility; can be used as an accent or neutralized with woodgrains. 4919-60 Blue Agave— deep teal blue; a global color influence coming from India and Latin America.
Go Wavy designs coordinate with Wilsonart’s newest woodgrains, Tea series, and Luna series, all introduced in 2009, as well as Wilsonart Solid Surface Global Spa and Global Gourmet series and Wilsonart Contract Flooring Uptown Walnut, Studio Walnut and Paradise Bamboo.
