Context

Younique® by Formica Group was specified by architects from Frank Whittle Partnership Limited for the washrooms at the LIFE (Learning Inspiration Future Employment) centre at Chorley & South Ribble Hospital. The centre has a range of departments for children aged 5+, and provides them with an NHS experience through mock wards, A&E, X-ray and triage departments. Chilrden can learn about the human anatomy, diseases, treatments and day-to-day life at NHS hospitals.

Solution

Younique®  Formica digitally rendered panels were used to create a fun design feature with an educational theme on toilet doors. Formica was also used on the lockers and integrated plumbing systems to give an aesthetic consistency.

Testimonial

David Simmons, Associate Partner and Interior Designer at Frank Whittle Partnership Limited, said:

“Formica laminate was a natural choice for this project, not just in terms of its aesthetic capabilities but also in regards to the surface material’s properties being ideal for the healthcare environment. We have used Formica Group products for years so we know how well it performs and we have never had any issues. The Younique by Formica Group collection allowed us to print images of our choice which was perfect for what we wanted. We’d never used Younique before and we’re extremely happy we did."
