Fundis Zalkerbos Hospital
Formica® Door Collection
Formica® Door Collection laminate was specified for Fundis Zalkerbos Hospital in the Netherlands, which was completed in 2018. The architects, Livin Ontwerpbureau, chose Formica laminate for the doors and furniture due to the variation of solid colour decors available and the durability of the product.
The colour scheme was very important as the designers used a different colour for each area of the hospital. Giving each floor or hospital area a distinct visual identity through colour helps patients and visitors find their way more easily, and strong colours can be a very valuable tool in helping people around the hospital, especially those with dementia or visual impairments.
Formica® Door Collection laminate was matched with the chosen floor and wall colours. Laminate was used for doors in Vibrant Green, Wasabi, Just Gold, Clementine, Terracotta, Levante, Bermuda, Capri, Opal, Sno White, Just Rose, Grenadine and Energy.
Each decor was perfectly matched with the other products used by the designers, showing that laminate is the perfect solution when a durable surface needs to be matched with other materials.
