Engineered Alternatives for
Natural Materials:

Composite Wood-Based Decorative Surfaces


A Note from Professor Merrill:

I invited Kenn to talk to my Interior Materials students about laminated materials. His lecture was informative, engaging, and educational. The material was presented at the right level for my third-year students.

He didn't bore students with too many technical details, but put materials in a global context with his observations from international exhibitions. His coverage of projects created by students and young designers from around the world helped bring students into the conversation. 

Kenn kept the class tuned in, and handled students’ questions well. This format and style would be great to have for other material categories as well. Other professors joined the class and found the information useful, and engaged Kenn to dig deeper on some specific questions relevant to their classes.

I am planning to invite Kenn for the next year's Interior Materials class to impart SCAD students with the deeper knowledge of available materials.

Materials Covered in the UW Presentation


The granddaddy of decorative laminates, HPL has proven itself over decades of use, and still offers more design options than any other material. 


Durable, easy to clean, 3D laminates are a perfect solution for healthcare, education, and retail. 

Decorative Paper Foils

Found often on vertical surfaces and RTA furniture, no other material is capable of the resolution and realism of decorative papers and foils.


TFL - thermally fused laminate - combines durability, design, and incredible textures for commericial and residential furniture and panels.
