Materials Playground Inspires at NeoCon

Over 2,000 specifiers, students, educators and other design professionals visited the Materials Pavilion at NeoCon 2016, organized by Interiors + Sources Magazine and Material Intelligence. 

Always an island of inspiration, the Pavilion was once again one of the busiest destinations at the fair. 

This year visitors emphasized that they liked the low-key approach to displaying dozens of the latest material samples, as well as having materials experts on hand to answer in-depth questions about material makeup, application recommendations and performance. 

We thank the organizers of NeoCon for once again making the Pavilion possible.

Each of the sponsored exhibits is profiled below, along with links for more information and samples.

Roseburg: From Managed Forests to Decorative TFL and Veneered Panels

Roseburg manages over 630,000 square acres of forestlands, 173,000 acres of which are FSC® certified, and plants over 5 million new trees each year.

The company produces a full range of composite panels—particleboard, MDF, plywood, and other substrates—from wood fiber left over from other processes that would otherwise be landfilled or burned. Particleboard alone makes use of over 150,000 tons or waste wood each year.

Roseburg’s hardwood veneer panels offer designers the look of beautiful solid woods, but use only a fraction of the tree. The company’s Duramine decorative TFL panels use realistic digital images on very durable surfaces over a composite core. Both can be found in retail, hospitality, healthcare, office and other commercial design markets.
