Laminex supports the RMIT Interior Design Class of 2017

Laminex proudly supporting the RMIT Interior Design (Honours) Class of 2017

At Laminex, we recognise the importance of supporting the next generation of designers and feel extremely privileged to be involved with the talented students of the RMIT Interior Design Class of 2017.

As the leader in decorative surfaces in Australia for over 80 years, we believe we have a guiding role to play to accompany the students on their way to becoming the next generation of great Australian designers.

This year, Laminex’s sponsorship saw involvement in the course curriculum and the Index final year exhibition event. It started with product knowledge sessions and then an invitation for students to really immerse themselves in the wide range of Laminex products and styles. “They experimented and explored a range of Laminex materials through speculative drawing and model making,” explained James Carey, RMIT Architecture and Design lecturer and INDEX Co-ordinator. “Thanks to the course and Laminex’s involvement, students were able to engage with a leading industry partner, expanding their knowledge of products and manufacturing processes. The students gained real design experience that will facilitate further networks when they graduate and enter industry.”

This product exploration fed into the end of semester assessment as the RMIT students developed comprehensive designs for the graduate exhibition INDEX bar. The designs were assessed and the strongest design was then created by the students, using Laminex products to stunning effect. “We are so excited to be involved with RMIT and these really talented students”, says Chris Knight, Customer Marketing Manager, Laminex , “We enjoyed how enthusiastically they experimented with range and how quickly they learned about our products too. The INDEX bar looked amazing, the students should be proud, "we certainly are".

We congratulate the students on their graduation and look forward to collaborating with them throughout the exciting design journeys they have ahead of them.

The Index bar design featured: Laminex Metaline, Laminex Impressions in Black Nuance finish, Laminex Cosmos and Laminex Innovations in Mirror Smoke.
