Material Intelligence Pavilion ‘The Greatest Thing’ at GlobalShop
As it has at NeoCon and IIDEX, the Materials Pavilion at GlobalShop received very high praise – “This is the greatest thing at the show,” was typical of the feedback attendees shared with us.
Among our hundreds of visitors were designers for the Walt Disney Company, Eddie Bauer, Victoria’s Secret, Whole Foods and Bloomingdale's, to name but a few.
Visitors said they appreciated being able to peruse such a large number of samples in one space, and to be able to ask questions in a non-sales environment.
The Pavilion's success was made possible with the help of THINK:Material, and the generous support of GlobalShop show management.

We look forward to seeing you in the Pavilion at NeoCon!

“Adventures in Authenticity” ties a diverse range of styles together that complement any décor, be it rustic, traditional, or contemporary. These designs not only reflect the beauty of the earth and its historic architecture, but also preserve it, by using authentic wood sources as the inspiration for sustainable, durable laminates.
Today’s trends point toward elegance paired with good value. Bamboo, reclaimed and engineered woods are gaining popularity due to increased environmental awareness as well as their ability to blend into many different design schemes. There is also a return to the traditional form of oak, maple, hickory, walnut and cherry, but with added character. The look is organic, inspiring, familiar and relaxing.
Süddekor LLC supplies decorative surfacing solutions to the North American laminate industry, and is the only company to offer North American laminate manufacturers a complete design service, from design through to printing and treating.
