Anti-fingerprint and anti-scuff decorative surfaces offer designers a balance of contemporary aesthetics with outstanding performance. Introducing Venette by polytec.
April 20th, 2018
Around the world, tastes are changing. In a return to Adolf Loos’ 1910 assertion that “ornament is crime,” today’s designers and end users are seeking out spaces that make new, inventive use of materials and eschew embellishments in favour of combining style and functionality.
Design trends reflect an ongoing shift away from the ornate, elaborate designs of yesteryear and toward a clean, minimalist aesthetic that prioritises subtlety over showiness. This preference for subtlety means that the popularity of gloss finishes, in particular, is declining, and the demand for luxe, matt finishes is steadily increasing.
In turn, these changes have prompted the industry to innovate and develop new super matt, fingerprint-resistant technology that opens up a breadth of new possibilities for laminate usage in commercial and residential projects.
Now, polytec is pleased to present Venette, the only Australian-made and owned fingerprint-resistant, anti-scuff decorative surface. Warm and smooth to the touch, Venette is the ideal surface for standing up to the wear and tear of a busy commercial environment.
It will not smudge, scuff, or show fingerprints, allowing designers unprecedented freedom to specify dark coloured pre-finished board for high use vertical applications. Effortlessly combining innovative, sustainable technology with a moisture resistant LPM composition, Venette by polytec delivers a luxe contemporary aesthetic alongside outstanding performance.
