Many factors influence the development of these trends.

SurfaceSet® 2018 Trend Observation

The continuous task of trend observation is very important for anyone in the design industry. At Formica Corporation, their designers continue to monitor and participate in global tradeshows, color forecasts, and pattern development. At the beginning of a new commercial launch, Formica® Brand designers hone in on specific trends observed in the market.  Drawing inspiration from global, cultural, economic and environmental changes, as well as art and design movements, SurfaceSet® 2018 offers a wide range of surfacing options—from Scandinavian-inspired maples, to a crisp new Plex texture, to artistic paint scrapes and reusing raw materials for new visuals to make interior spaces more relevant.

This collection features three palettes that fuse beautiful design with purposeful functionality.

Personal Sanctuary. Create a moment of calm amidst the urban chaos. This elegant palette of deeply saturated color is balanced with serene neutrals and finely crafted to approach pure materials

Spectral. Brimming with creativity, this theme takes a low-tech approach, championing a more free-hand style. With a solid color back to basics palette, a feeling of energy and optimism is created.

Smart Organic. Making a much more scientific approach to an environmentally conscious theme, designers manipulate desirable qualities of both natural and synthetic materials to create never before seen smart bio-composites.
