Paper, stone, drippers

Words:
Jan-Carlos Kucharek

Formica Group has added 113 colours and textures to expand to over 600 its decorative laminates; creating ‘a colour palette so wide even Jackson Pollock would have thought twice’. Strange, as most people thought ‘Jack the Dripper’ didn’t even think once. The seemingly random nature of his drip art is reflected in another kind of ‘random nature’; Formica’s True Scale marble decors offer larger panels and less repetition on its eight life-like stone veins.
