Honest, authentic and raw. These were the qualities of a building cladding that captured our imagination as we travelled through downtown Portland in Oregon on our epic road trip. We loved the textures so much that it became the basis of a new laminate which bears the name of the location – Humboldt Street!
Anything can be an inspiration for design, even a rusted wall cladding.
Travel has always been a wellspring of inspiration for designers, even laminate designers. Wherever the Lamitak team goes, we always keep our eyes open for visually arresting textures; but it is not often we can pinpoint the final design to a single location. However, in the case of the rugged wood-inspired Rialto Pine laminate, it was two locations, halfway around the world from each other, which motivated its design. We share the story of its creation.
Bookmatched marble, once exclusive to luxury hotels and swanky abodes for its prohibitive price, has now been democratised. Lamitak has just launched two laminate designs inspired by bookmatched marble, and it looks set to revolutionise home design!
Laminates have perfected the art of mimicry. The level of realism a laminate design can achieve is especially evident in more elaborate patterns, such as that of exotic, expensive marble. These examples from Lamitak certainly capture the grandeur and opulence natural marble can bring to a space. You almost can’t believe the following walls are not marble!
Laminates already come in a huge variety of designs, such as wood, stone, fabric, and metal, as well as in the usual solid colours. What more could you ask for? How about laminates that express fresh trends in print and pattern, providing individualistic, daring homeowners with bold decorative possibilities. The new brand from Lamitak, artäk, brings exactly that.
