"Grate" New Advertising From Laminex

"Grate" New Advertising From Laminex

Laminex continues to push the boundaries of benchtop surfacing with a new advertising campaign that takes inspiration literally from nature. In a break from traditional advertising, the new Laminex executions do not actually feature pictures of benchtops.

Instead, a simple "frame" device is placed on top of a real life scene and photographed. The first ad in the series shows a picture of a ventilation grate, reminiscent of the Laminex innovations "Wenge Rondo" surface. Other ads in the series include a close-up of a pebble beach. The ad copy simply says "inspiration can come from anywhere".

Lianne Ning, The Laminex Group category manager - decorative surfaces, says the new advertising reinforces the innovative philosophy of The Laminex Group. "We are in the business of looking at things differently - and we thought it was time to take a fresh approach to the way decorative surfaces are advertised," Ning says.

The Laminex brand is divided into two ranges of high pressure laminates according to design usage.

The Laminex innovations range is the cutting-edge choice for sophisticated design for vertical surfaces. The range has more than 60 different colours, textures and designs that bring energy to commercial and domestic environments. These include decorative prints and patterns in silver, chrome and gold, as well as tone-patterned washes, black-and-white images and corrugated finishes.

The Laminex colour palette range offers more than 140 high-pressure laminate colours, patterns and woodgrains. Designed to handle the most demanding kitchen and bathroom conditions, Laminex high-pressure laminates can be heat-formed without cracking or blistering, making them perfect for shaping a seamless splashback or rounded-edge benchtop.
