Clerkenwell Design Week 2022 – the international design festival that returned in May after its two-year hiatus – delivered a spectacular display of product launches, installations and talks. Getting in on the action was UNILIN Panels, which sheltered a host of panels and discussions inside its Clerkenwell base.
With live talks from some of the industry’s brightest names hosted by the inimitable Grant Gibson of Material Matters, Kokedama making workshops, a day of Belgian themed street food and a closing party with free flowing hospitality and live DJ, UNILIN Panels certainly left its mark on this year’s fair.
Revealing its new 2022 – 2026 decorative range and telling the story of its sustainable manufacturing processes including the use of 100 per cent recovered wood in its decorative surfaces, the Belgian panel powerhouse welcomed almost a thousand visitors over the three days. Spending time with architects and designers from practices of all shapes and sizes, it has now strengthened its status as the brand to watch.
Charlotte Van Vlierberghe, brand manager for UNILIN Panels, says: “We are one of Europe’s biggest decorative surfaces manufacturers and we have worked tirelessly over the last years to build a UK distribution network ready for today’s architects and designers. We used Clerkenwell Design Week as a platform to showcase finishes such as our incredibly lifelike Master Oak and to discuss with the community how we can help them with decorative effects that prioritise authenticity, sustainability, quality and durability. We were happy to welcome so many people to The Gallery Clerkenwell and enjoyed the many conversations we had.”
UNILIN Panels also used Clerkenwell Design Week as the launchpad for its Decorative Compact MDF, a readily available and budget-friendly alternative to compact HPL that excels in scratch and wear resistance. Available in different thicknesses and in more than 80 designs, this innovation is part of the 2022-2026 Collection, featuring 222 contemporary designs ready to bring big ideas to life in any commercial interior.
